I just installed SMTP Pro extension for sending emails by SMTP. I get the following errors:

Detected overwrite conflict:


Please help and consider that I'm new to magento. I couldn't find a solution in the internet. I run Magento 1.9.2

  • CRM4Ecommerce_CRMCore is this module belongs to smtp pro? – saravanavelu Sep 29 '16 at 4:28

You can solve this conflict by following go to this class file app/code/CLASSCODEPOOL/CRM4Ecommerce/CRMCore/Model/Rewrite/Core/Email/Template.php and change its extending class to


so your class would be like this

class CRM4Ecommerce_CRMCore_Model_Rewrite_Core_Email_Template extends Aschroder_SMTPPro_Model_Email{

  • I did as you explained but now I get other messages!! SMTP Pro Self Test Results Detected overwrite conflict: CRM4Ecommerce_CRMCore_Model_Rewrite_Core_Email_Template Test email was sent successfully. Could not test default template validity. Exception message was: Invalid method CRM4Ecommerce_CRMCore_Model_Rewrite_Core_Email_Template::loadDefault(Array ( [0] => contacts_email_email_template [1] => en_US ) )... Please check that you have templates in place for your emails. These are in app/locale, or custom defined in System > Transaction Emails. – ASH Sep 30 '16 at 2:40
  • so your solution is to replace (Mage_Core_Model_Email_Template) with (Aschroder_SMTPPro_Model_Email) which I did but now I get the error message above. – ASH Sep 30 '16 at 2:42
  • you have to change your config.xml as well now you need to rewrite the SMTPpro extension model instead core email model – Murtuza Zabuawala Sep 30 '16 at 2:59
  • I don't think that I understood what you just said. Can you please explain? I'm new to this. – ASH Sep 30 '16 at 3:08
  • I just noticed when I edited the file you mentioned above and extended the class to Aschroder_SMTPPro_Model_Email all transactional emails stopped working even if I try to preview a transactional email template. I restored the files and everything went back to normal. Still can't figure out how to fix this issue. Both authors and their websites don't respond so far. – ASH Sep 30 '16 at 3:44
