Send mail with Mandrill and Django

Faisal MahmudFaisal Mahmud

Mandrill is a great service for sending mail from your app. In this tutorial I will show you how simple it is to use Mandrill with Django thru the use of a plugin called djrill.

  1. Go to http://www.mandrill.com/ and create an account if you do not have one already!
  2. Create an API key by clicking on "Settings" and then "SMTP & API Info"

Install the djrill Django app

pip install djrill

Changes to your settings.py file

settings.py

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'djrill'
)

EMAIL_BACKEND = "djrill.mail.backends.djrill.DjrillBackend"
MANDRILL_API_KEY = "pasteyourapikeyhere"
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'Mail from Django <mail@django.com>'
SERVER_EMAIL = 'mail@django.com'

For more info take a look at https://github.com/brack3t/Djrill

That's it!
