Currently both of our transactional profiles provide map for the `mailchimp` provider, which is confusing for users unfamiliar with Mailchimp's offering. I just got from a support call with user who tried to use the Mailchimp map with Mailchimp's API key and was getting `Invalid key` error. The solution was to navigate to Transactional Email in Mailchimp's Dashboard and enter Mandrillapp dashboard. Apparently the original intent behind the `mailchimp` provider was to respect that it's a single company and product. However, this seems to be confusing and could even turn problematic with other, Mailchimp-specific map. My suggestion here is to introduce a new `mandrillapp` provider and change existing maps for Mailchimp to use that provider instead. Before we do that, make sure that Mailchimp's APIs require a different API key for sure.

    For the record, Mailchimp's and Mandrill's APIs require different keys.
