How to install SMTP

Important:

- We recommend you to duplicate your live store on a staging/test site and try installation on it in advance
- Backup magento files and the store database

It’s very important to backup all of themes and extensions in Magento before installation, especially when you are working on a live server. We strongly recommend you to do not omit this step.

Method 1: Install via composer (recommend)

Run the following command in Magento 2 root folder:

composer require mageplaza/module-smtp
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy


Method #2: Copy & Paste

1.1 Step 1: Download SFTP clients

Download SFTP clients, we recommend clients: FileZilla, WinSCP. In this case, we are using WinSCP to install the module.
