I am building my ecommerce store in Magento 1.9.4. I have installed Ashroder SMTP Pro extension manually through FTP. It installed successfully. I have done RUN SHELL test but I am getting connection refused error. I have attached the screenshot. I am using Custom SMTP option & used my email login & password that I purchased from my hosting account, please confirm is it correct. Also confirm the info I have filled is correct. Please help me in this concern. New error is coming. Please take a look. enter image description here


Custom SMTP is only used for your localhost’s SMTP. If you want to use Google SMTP, select Google in the Email connection.

Here's a screenshot. enter image description here

Select Google Apps or Gmail. That's the first option before Custom SMTP.

  • How to do that? Pleas explain in details. – Salman Dalal Sep 16 '20 at 13:56
  • In the E-mail Connection option, select Google/Gmail instead of Custom SMTP. I added a screenshot above for your reference. – Bryan Veloso Sep 17 '20 at 6:11
  • Only I have to select Google mail and to keep other field blank – Salman Dalal Sep 17 '20 at 14:23
  • After selecting Google Apps or SMTP. Just enter your Google Apps e-mail and password. It should work. :D If you're using custom SMTP, the host should be the IP address of your mailserver. May I know what webhosting company you're using? – Bryan Veloso Sep 19 '20 at 8:14
  • I am using GoDaddy – Salman Dalal Sep 19 '20 at 16:06
