Would you still use PHPMailer in WordPress or wp-mail?

Hi I was just wondering if you would use PHPMailer in WordPress or wp-mail? I know there are also plugins to handled email like wp mandrill, would you use one of those?

Actually I've discovered that wp-mail actually uses a version of PHPMailer so the best practice is probably to use wp-mail itself.

Thanks for the information.
