Can I send messages via Mixpanel using an API instead of via the UI?

At this time, Mixpanel Messages may only be sent via the Mixpanel UI; there is no inbound API available to programmatically trigger Mixpanel messages.

The reason for this is that Mixpanel’s Message tool is designed to send highly targeted messages to users that meet a defined criteria with the goal of getting those users to complete some action key to your business (e.g., make a purchase, share content, etc.). Mixpanel currently isn’t designed or intended to be leveraged as a standalone messaging service, transactional (receipt) delivery system or for drip campaigns.
