Successful email delivery
Usage of reliable SMTP server greatly improves the chance of email delivery
By default Magento uses PHP ‘sendmail’ for sending emails. In vast majority of cases emails are dispatched via the mail server of the server where Magento is installed. This may have a serious impact on how your messages are treated by your recipients’ mail servers. In other words, it’s quite likely that your emails will either end up in spam folders or will get rejected altogether.
The extension enables you to use any third-party SMTP server for your Magento store and configure all the necessary Magento email settings to resolve this problem. You can use reliable SMTP servers like gmail or yahoo to give your emails the highest chance of getting through to your customers.
Use proven SMTP servers for Magento
As mentioned above, with SMTP Email Settings Magento extension, you can use any third-party SMTP server you prefer. Thanks to pre-defined data autofill option you just need to select a certain SMTP provider, and other fields such as 'Server Address', "Port" will be filled in automatically.
Setup SPF record for your domain
Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email validation system designed to prevent email spam by detecting email spoofing by verifying sender IP addresses. We provide instructions on how to setup SPF record in the extension user guide.
Ability to check SMTP connection
You can check if the Magento email SMTP connection you’ve setup works correctly. If there’s any error, you will see it in the debug log.
Email log and test mode to insure correct operation
Log of emails with detailed view
Magento 1 SMTP Email Settings extension lets you log all the emails sent from your store. You can view the list of all emails sent and also open any of them to see what exactly was sent to a customer. The log is shown in admin panel, no need to go to the file system. If needed, you can have the log automatically cleared, e.g. remove the messages sent 90 or more days ago.
Debug mode for easy detection of wrong Magento email settings
You can have the module emulate sending of emails without actually sending them. You will also see the log to make sure the Magento SMTP settings work correctly. Like the above one, this log can also be cleared automatically.
