Can you help me understand the best way to get to this kind of outcome:
Customer A buys product X and gets a normal everyday receipt email AND THEN gets another email that says "and here's the special info you need to know about buying product X [because it's in the blue category]"
Customer B buys product Y and gets a normal everyday receipt email AND THEN gets another email that says "and here's the special info you need to know about buying product Y [because it's in the pink category]"
1. Is that why I'd use categories in foxycart, setting up pink and blue categories?
2. And then I could use special email templates for each category?
3. And conceivably there's no limit on the # of categories, and I could have a category for nearly every product I want?
*Without getting off-topic, I'm also alternatively considering http://mandrill.com/
which is the transactional email solution new from Mailchimp. I'm thinking I could do all my email config / design stuff within Mandrill / Mailchimp and then just do some API magic between FoxyCart and Mandrill / Mailchimp to achieve the scenario above. So I'm thinking about usign FoxyCart categories as the simplest starting point...
Welcome people's experiences or observations on this.
