    'secret' => env('MANDRILL_KEY'),

You can also add custom Mandrill headers to each email sent, for this you need to add the headers array in the following format to config\services.php:

'mandrill' => [
    'secret' => env('MANDRILL_KEY'),
    'headers' => [
        'header-example-x' => env('MANDRILL_HEADER_X'),
        'header-example-y' => env('MANDRILL_HEADER_Y'),

Accessing Mandrill message ID

Mandrill message ID's for sent emails can be accessed by listening to the MessageSent event. It can then be read either from the sent data or the X-Message-ID header.

Event::listen(\Illuminate\Mail\Events\MessageSent::class, function($event)
    $messageId = $event->sent->getMessageId();
    $messageId = $event->message->getHeaders()->get('X-Message-ID');
