Yes you can use Mandrill. When you sign up with Mandrill you will need to add some DNS records to your domain which you do through your domain registrar. Then in Mandrill it will give you the SMTP details. You also need to add an "API key" in Mandrill which becomes your password for the SMTP.

By the way, you can also use Gmail if you set up Google Accounts for Business. It's about $5/month I think.
I use google apps for business. But based on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18361233/gmail-sending-limits i can only send 2000 email perday using SMTP.
That's interesting, I had no idea there was a limit. I'm using Google Apps for Business too, I'll have to double check how many emails I'm sending.

Although Mandrill's free limit is 10,000 per month which is less than 2,000/day.
