OpenCart gives the administrator the ability to send notifications about promotions and new products to their customers. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to send an email to all of your customers using OpenCart. Before you can send emails to your customers, you must configure the mail settings first. If you have not done so, please review our article on configuring your mail settings in OpenCart.
- Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
- Go to Sales > Mail
- The mail screen will appear. Fill in the fields by choosing the appropriate sender (From:), whether you’re sending this email to all customers, specific customer groups or only newsletter subscribers (To:), the subject (What the email is about), and the message (the actual email).
- Click “Send”
If you need further assistance please feel free to ask a question on our support center website.

Thoughts on “Sending Emails to Customers through OpenCart 1.5”
When I configure my website’s source code to use these settings and then do something on the website interface to send an email automatically I get these error pop up:
Notice: Error: EHLO not accepted from server! in /home/fuelce6/public_html/system/library/mail.php on line 200
Were you able to set your site up to use SMTP to send messages? Make sure you do that first, otherwise you may run into some issues. If so, double check and make sure that you are using the settings for secure SMTP appropriate to your site. Hope that helps!
