Not with that service but I have used Mandrill, SendGrid and MailGun for sending transactional and drip emails with Quickbase using the PHP API SDK.

What are you trying to do with emails?  Why this service?

How did they work? How were you able to trigger an email from an action in quickbase?

You have two options and they both work great, but one if a little harder to setup.

Option #1 - Query Report (Not As it Happens)
- Setup a report with your conditions eg. Customers entered 5 days ago
- Use API to query the QID and get the data
- Use data to populate email and use a third party API like Mandrill to send.
**BTW, Mandrill is free for up to 12K emails a month

Option #2: Use QB Notifications
- Setup notifications for actions that happen in QB like a record is added or modified
- Setup Incoming Mail Parse using Mandrill or SendGrid
- Write a script that parses the incoming email from QB's contents
- Send emails using this data accordingly.

There is also another option and that would be to take a look at Zapier or iTDuzzIt but they may cost $ depending on your demands.   

If you would like help getting this put together, we can chat further on the phone or by email?  I currently have a webserver handing incoming emails from QB and outgoing transactional and it works great.  I also have a system setup where you can even modify records by sending an email to my system.
