Email Backend

A Django backend for e-mail delivery using uWSGI Spool to queue deliveries.


First, add uWSGI backend in your settings file.

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django_uwsgi.mail.EmailBackend'

And send your e-mails normally.

from django.core.mail import send_mail

send_mail('Subject here', 'Here is the message.', '',
    [''], fail_silently=False)


You must setup uwsgi spooler. Example ini:

plugin = spooler
spooler = /tmp
spooler-import = django_uwsgi.tasks

or use built in management command runuwsgi

Changing the backend

By default the ‘django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend’ is used for the real e-mail delivery. You can change that using:

UWSGI_EMAIL_BACKEND = 'your.backend.EmailBackend'


If you’re using django-configurations in your project, you must setup importer as mentioned in django-configurations docs for celery
