Email is one of the oldest and most effective ways to streamline store-customer communication. In particular, transactional emails such as account registration, reset password, order confirmation are essential to every Magento 2 store.

By default, transactional emails are sent using server mail configurations. However, unfortunately, they often do not work, or merchants want to use third-party SMTP services that ensure precise email deliverability.

Magento 2 SMTP Extension bridges the gap between untrustworthy default server mail configurations and successful email delivery in case your server doesn't provide SMTP configuration by default.

There are multiple modules to choose from. However, in this article, you'll learn about the best Magento 2 SMTP extensions to consider for your store.

Without any further ado, let's get to the specifics.
