Please welcome the new Amasty extension for Magento 2 – SMTP Email Settings.
Send reliable emails from a popular local hosting or a custom Magento 2 SMTP server. Take full control over Magento 2 SMTP settings and run tests before sending out the mail. Make sure that customers and partners receive all emails you send.
Why do you need this extension?
This extension lets you have full control over SMTP configuration. If you’re serious about your business, you’ll certainly want to use SMTP protocol as a more reliable way of sending your emails. What is more, using an SMTP server for your Magento installation means that your emails have less chances to be marked as spam. Read more about protecting your emails from the spam folder here.
But Magento 2 doesn’t work with SMTP out of the box, so we created a tool which lets you use a popular SMTP server or even your own one. For example, we at Amasty use our own mail server based on Zimbra.
Main features of SMTP Email Settings for Magento 2
Configure your own SMTP server or use a popular service
If you use your own custom SMTP server for sending emails, you can easily add its configuration in the extension settings and make it work for your Magento 2 store. What is more, the extension has several pre-configured options for the following popular services:
