We recently released our long awaited integration with Mailchimp which includes the ability to automatically add attendees to a Mailchimp audience list when tickets are generated. You can also specify default tags or event-specific tags that can be used to segment your Mailchimp list which opens up a host of exciting possibilities with FooEvents!
The Mailchimp Integration help documentation contains further information and setup instructions.
