Effective email delivery is the foundation of a well-running e-commerce business. When choosing the right email infrastructure, we should remember the traditional SMTP servers offered by the hosting company may cause problems with message deliverability. To avoid this type of situation, it’s worth considering a professional SMTP cloud server.
Switching infrastructure to EmailLabs will not only increase deliverability, but also:
Traditional SMTP server settings in Magento 2 only allow you to choose the host and port, so in order to use a third-party server, we need to download and install a suitable plugin – Magento Connect offers a wide range of them. The most popular one is Mageplaza, and it’ s totally free of charge.
Once the plugin is installed, you need to configure the SMTP settings. To do this, go to the Magento dashboard panel and select Stores > Configuration > Mageplaza Extensions > SMTP > General Configuration.
Next, check the “Enable Mageplaza SMTP” box and select “YES”.
In the next step, we move on to selecting SMTP configuration options through Stores > Configuration > Mageplaza Extensions > SMTP > SMTP Configuration Options.
