I have finally finished my Magento SMTP, Gmail and Google Apps Email combined extension. It will be available on Magento Connect shortly (as soon as Varien fix the little bugs in the ‘submit extension’ interface – namely version and stability appear to be required and missing from the form.
I won’t bore you with the details again – but I have tested this working on version 1.4 of Magento (along with 1.2 and 1.3 as always). So for those of you having trouble with email on Magento 1.4 – give this alpha release of my SMTP, Gmail and Google Apps email Magento extension a go. Please note it is a development release, and you should definitely not install it on a production site without first testing it in your development environment.
With this extension you can:
- Use Magento with your choice of SMTP server, port and authentication/encryption schemes
- Use Magento with Gmail or Google Apps Email very easily
Please download it and test it out, let me know any feedback you may have.
Update: Thanks to Paulius there is a specially packaged version of the extension that will make it easy to install manually until I can get the Magento Connect version updated (which is still failing). Get it here!
