I am newbie in magento, I am trying to get installed the aschroder SMTP extension recommended by Mathias in this answer from the project's page in GitHub. I've checked Ashley's blog for instructions but I am lost. Could you please share with me directions for this installation?

Thank you very much.

  • We're just as lost — what part don't you understand? – Alan Storm Apr 17 '14 at 18:42

If you don't feel equipped to install it manually, you could always install it using Magento Connect.

  1. A Wiki on how to Use Magento Connect Manager

  2. ASchroder.com SMTP Pro Email - Free and Easy Magento Emailing for SMTP, Gmail or Google Apps email

They also offer a complete guide on how to install this over here:

Home/Magento/Installing a Magento Extension manually via FTP or SSH

You should manage to come right if you follow the step-by-step instructions, it really isn't too complicated.

  • Thank you for your reply @moose, I had previously checked option 2 but it only supports v1.5. Currently I have 1.7. I've also previously installed extensions using connect manager. Reading the complete guide is where I don't know specifically what folders from the project put into my current installation folders. Thanks again. – David Apr 17 '14 at 20:11
