Test Email Backend¶
EmailBackend is a simple Email backend, that sends all emails to a defined
address, no matter what the recipient really is.
This is useful in times of development & testing to prevent mass mails to example.com or existing addresses and to review all email communication.
In order to use it, set this in your local_settings.py:
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django_libs.test_email_backend.EmailBackend' TEST_EMAIL_BACKEND_RECIPIENTS = ( ('Name', 'email@example.com'), )
If you’re using django-mailer don’t forget to add:
MAILER_EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django_libs.test_email_backend.EmailBackend'
WhitelistEmailBackend provides more control over what can be sent where.
To use it, first define the
EMAIL_BACKEND_WHITELIST = [firstname.lastname@example.org']
This setting holds regex patterns which define, which emails may be sent and
which are being discarded. The above example will allow every email adress from
example.com domain to be delivered.
If you still want to receive all the discarded emails, you can additionally
TEST_EMAIL_BACKEND_RECIPIENTS like above and set
EMAIL_BACKEND_REROUTE_BLACKLIST = True TEST_EMAIL_BACKEND_RECIPIENTS = ( ('Name', 'email@example.com'), )
With this setup, all recipients, that match one of the whitelisted email
patterns will be sent to the correct recipient, but in case it didn’t match,
the recipients will be replaced with the ones from the
