To help out future rookies who will find this:
I don't know if the mandrill gem changed but following your steps, I could not get emails to send. Turns out in the Mandrill gem docs they say "The gem assumes your API key is stored as an environment variable called MANDRILL_APIKEY."

So I figured out foreman, and how to load an .env file etc and then it started working.

What should you do instead now?
