How to send emails using MODX?

By default, MODX will use the SMTP service on your web server to send emails, mostly using PHP Mailer. Although this normally works fine, there are a number of times your SMTP service might fail - it could crash, or a mailbox could be temporarily out of action and there could be a number of spam complaints against your site's IP address, especially if you are on a shared IP.

Pepipost integrates seamlessly with MODX. Here are the steps to use SMTP Service on MODX via Pepipost.
