In order to configure an extension,

Go to stores -> configuration -> MAGEPLAZA EXTENSIONS -> Information -> [General Configuration ->Enable Mageplaza Menu -> Yes] -> Save Config

and if you're not sure about the menu and the configuration in the sense. Please check the below file understand better.

Go to app/code/Mageplaza/Smtp/etc/adminhtml/system.xml

that is where all the configuration stuffs will be defined.

Hope this helps.
