Easy, Painless Setup
MageSend takes away the complexity of configuring email for your Magento store, and requires only two easy to obtain access credentials in order to begin sending email.
The built-in self-test button will send a test email via the SES service and report any installation issues such as extension conflicts.
The included setup guide will take you through installation and advanced configuration of Amazon IAM, Amazon SES, Amazon SNS and the DNS records (DKIM, SPF and SPF2) you need to maximize your store email deliverability.
If you’ve got more important things to do with you time than installing and setting-up Magento extensions, opt for the premium install and setup service. It’s a quick and easy option to solving email issues.
Send and Bounce Logging Support
MageSend supports full outbound sent email logging, so you can review any messages being sent, and ensure no customer communication is going out unexpectedly. MageSend also listens for and receives delivery, bounce and complaint notifications configured to be sent back to your store from Amazon’s servers. This will allow you to identify problem email addresses such as email@example.com and deal with them appropriately.
Monitor Email Traffic
MageSend reports near-real-time email stats in the Magento Admin, you can keep an eye on the number of emails being sent, and also the bounces, rejections and complaints occurring each day. Combined with the fine-grain logging of outbound and problem emails, you can easily monitor and track your store’s email sending.
Well Coded, Easily Customised
With over 20,000 downloads of my open-source SMTP extension I have a proven track record of delivering reliable software. MageSend represents a further iteration my open-source software to become a complete, premium email solution for any Magento store. Many modern Magento coding approaches have been adopted, to ensure a reliable and compatible extension that can integrate with any existing extensions that may rely on sending emails or modifying emails. The entire extension is unencrypted, so you’re free to browse, review and modify it – note though that if you do choose to modify the code it will not be supported.
Backed by Industry Expertise
Since 2009 I have been helping merchants send email from Magento stores. I have supported countless stores and have distilled the experience and knowledge into this extension. It represents the best way to send email, and maximum deliverability to your customers. It's backed by the most reliable Amazon servers, it's easy to log and debug, and it can handle hosting firewalls to ensure your emails get through without outbound SMTP access.
Powered by Amazon
There are only a handful of organizations with the internet clout to deliver emails globally. Amazon is one of them and they offer an email service backed by their trusted email servers called Amazon SES. This extension will take advantage of that service, you simply sign up and provide your AWS credentials. The Amazon SES rates for emails are ultra low 10c per 1000 messages at last check.
Amazon SES Regions
MageSend supports multiple Amazon SES regions, allowing you to choose a location close to your Magento store hosting for low latency email sending.
MageSend Magento Email suports Magento releases since 2011 with the release of 1.6.0. We will support every major stable release of the 1.x branch for two years from the time you purchase.
Full Installation and Setup service
We offer a full installation and setup service for MageSend Magento Email. Installing Magento extensions, setting up Amazon SES accounts, configuring security and DNS is stuff for nerds. If you’ve got better things to do with your time than set up SPF and DKIM, let me and my team take care of it for you, for a flat rate fee of $250. Simply add the install service to your cart, and we’ll book a time for the install and setup.
If we don’t have your emails up and running after purchasing the extension, and the install service, you’ll get a complete refund of both – if you’re not sending emails when we’re finished, you pay nothing.

Frequenty Asked Questions
Does the extension support sending newsletters from Magento?
Yes, but we urge you not to use it. The Email newsletter functionality built into Magento is half-baked at best. The emails you send, and the metrics and reporting you get back are well below the required standard for effective email marketing.
or premium self-hosted options like:
Sendy (which also uses your Amazon SES account!)
How will the outbound emails work with my customer service?
The extension will send the emails
'From:' your store email addresses. That means that you control the configuration of the sending email addresses, but you also need to ensure you have verified all of them with Amazon, to prove you own them and are allowed to send on behalf of them.
Having said that, it’s fairly common, and best practice, to use a support desk service for managing inbound customer communication. That way all outbound emails, and all inbound emails can be run through a mailbox such as firstname.lastname@example.org. MageSend works well in this sort of email configuration, and it will giv you a great platform to grow your customer support team.
I’m not happy with my purchase, what should I do?
If you’re not happy (for any reason), we’re not happy. Contact email@example.com and we’ll arrange a full refund. No questions asked.
How do I know if the extension will be compatible with my store?
Extension clashes are an inevitable fact of Magento store life. The good news is the extension will detect clashes and alert you during self test. If the clash is minor, the event based integration that MageSend uses should make it easy to resolve the conflict. For more advanced conflict resolution, we offer a custom development service for an additional fee. Contact us for a quote.
I’m a highly technical user, will the extension suit me?
Let’s talk nerdy, MageSend is fully compatible with modman Magento module installation management. It’s fully event-enabled for both pre-and post sending integration. It’s written along the most recent core Magento guidelines for email template integration. If you want to talk nerdy just get in touch with us.
