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.

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
