     189Not all features of the ``EmailMessage`` class are available through the

     191features, such as BCC'ed recipients, file attachments, or multi-part
     192e-mail, you'll need to create ``EmailMessage`` instances directly.

    193     ``send_mail()`` and related wrapper functions. If you wish to use advanced
    194     features, such as BCC'ed recipients, file attachments, or multi-part

    196195
    197196    This is a design feature. ``send_mail()`` and related functions were

    202201
    203202In general, ``EmailMessage`` is responsible for creating the e-mail message
    204 itself. ``SMTPConnection`` is responsible for the network connection side of
    205 the operation. This means you can reuse the same connection (an
    206 ``SMTPConnection`` instance) for multiple messages.
     203itself. The email backend is responsible for sending the email. By default
     204the SMTP backend is used to send emails using a SMTP server.
     205
     206If you're sending lots of messages at once, the ``send_messages()`` method of
     207the email backend is useful. It takes a list of ``EmailMessage``
     208instances (or subclasses) and sends them over a single connection. For example,
     209if you have a function called ``get_notification_email()`` that returns a
     210list of ``EmailMessage`` objects representing some periodic e-mail you wish to
     211send out, you could send this with::
     212
     213    connection = SMTPConnection()   # Use default settings for connection
     214    messages = get_notification_email()
     215    connection.send_messages(messages)
     216
     217If you want to resuse the same connection for multiple messages, but can't
     218use ``send_messages()``, you'll have to use the ``open()`` and ``close()``
     219methods of the email backend::
     220
     221    from django.core import mail
     222
     223    connection = mail.get_connection()
     224    connection.open()
     225    email1 = mail.EmailMessage('Hello', 'Body goes here', 'from@example.com',
     226                               ['to1@example.com'], connection=connection)
     227    email1.send()
     228    email2 = mail.EmailMessage('Hello again', 'Body goes here',
     229                               'from@example.com', ['to1@example.com'],
     230                               connection=connection)
     231    email2.send()
     232    connection.close()

     362Email Backends
     363==============
     364
     365.. versionadded:: 1.2
     366
     367The actual sending of an email is handled by the email backend.
     368By default the SMTP backend will be used.
     369
     370Your email backend preferences goes in the ``EMAIL_BACKEND`` setting in
     371your settings file. Here's an explanation of all available values for
     372``EMAIL_BACKEND``.
     373
     374SMTP backend
     375------------
     376
     377This is the default backend. Email will be sent through a SMTP server.
     378The server address and authentication credentials are set in the
     379:setting:`EMAIL_HOST`, :setting:`EMAIL_POST`, :setting:`EMAIL_HOST_USER`,
     380:setting:`EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD` and :setting:`EMAIL_USE_TLS` settings in your
     381settings file.
     382
     383The SMTP backend is configured in the default settings::
     384
     385    EMAIL_BACKEND = 'smtp'
     386
     387
     388SMTPConnection objects
     389~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    336390
    337391.. class:: SMTPConnection
    338392
     393.. note::
     394
     395   ``mail.SMTPConnection`` is deprecated, use ``mail.get_connection`` instead.
     396   For backwards compatibility ``SMTPConnection`` is still available in
     397   ``django.core.mail`` as an alias for the SMTP backend.
     398
    339399The ``SMTPConnection`` class is initialized with the host, port, username and
    340400password for the SMTP server. If you don't specify one or more of those
    341401options, they are read from your settings file.
    342402
    343 If you're sending lots of messages at once, the ``send_messages()`` method of
    344 the ``SMTPConnection`` class is useful. It takes a list of ``EmailMessage``
    345 instances (or subclasses) and sends them over a single connection. For example,
    346 if you have a function called ``get_notification_email()`` that returns a
    347 list of ``EmailMessage`` objects representing some periodic e-mail you wish to
    348 send out, you could send this with::
     403Console backend (for development)
     404---------------------------------
    349405
    350     connection = SMTPConnection()   # Use default settings for connection
    351     messages = get_notification_email()
    352     connection.send_messages(messages)
     406Instead of sending out real emails the console backend just writes the emails
     407that would be send to the standard output. To use this backend, use
     408in your settings::
    353409
    354 Testing e-mail sending
    355 ----------------------
     410    EMAIL_BACKEND = 'console'
     411
     412File backend (for development)
     413------------------------------
     414
     415The file backend writes emails to a file. A new file is created for each
     416new instance of this backend. The directory to which the files are written
     417is either taken from the :setting:`EMAIL_FILE_PATH` setting or from the
     418``file_path`` keyword when creating a connection with ``get_connection()``.
     419To use this backend, use in your settings::
     420
     421    EMAIL_BACKEND = 'file'
     422    EMAIL_FILE_PATH = '/tmp/app-messages' # change this to a proper location
     423
     424Dummy backend (for development)
     425-------------------------------
     426
     427As the name suggests the dummy backend does nothing with your messages.
     428To enable this backend, use in your settings file::
     429
     430   EMAIL_BACKEND = 'dummy'
     431
     432This backend can be useful during development, if you even want to suppress
     433the output produced by the console backend.
     434
     435Using a custom email backend
     436----------------------------
     437
     438If you need to change how emails are send you can write your own email
     439backend. The ``EMAIL_BACKEND`` setting in your settings file is then the
     440Python import path for your backend.
     441
     442Custom email backends should subclass ``BaseEmailBackend`` that is located
     443in the ``django.core.mail.backends.base`` module. A custom email
     444backend must implement the ``send_messages(email_messages)`` method. This
     445method receives a list of ``EMailMessage`` instances and returns the number
     446of successfully delivered messages. If your backend should be capable of
     447network connection handling, you should implement both the ``open()``
     448and ``close()`` methods too. Refer to ``SMTPEmailBackend`` for a reference
     449implementation.
     450
     451Testing Email Sending
     452=====================
    356453
    357454The are times when you do not want Django to send e-mails at all. For example,
    358455while developing a website, you probably don't want to send out thousands of
     
    360457people under the right conditions, and that those e-mails will contain the
    361458correct content.
    362459
    363 The easiest way to test your project's use of e-mail is to use a "dumb" e-mail
    364 server that receives the e-mails locally and displays them to the terminal,
    365 but does not actually send anything. Python has a built-in way to accomplish
    366 this with a single command::
     460The easiest way to test your project's use of e-mail is to change the
     461``EMAIL_BACKEND`` setting in your settings file to ``'console'`` to use
     462a backend that doesn't send any email but writes them to the
     463terminal.

    11211121(Don't worry -- this has no effect on any other e-mail senders outside of
    11221122Django, such as your machine's mail server, if you're running one.)
    11231123
     
    11291129``django.core.mail.outbox``. This is a simple list of all
    11301130:class:`<~django.core.mail.EmailMessage>` instances that have been sent.
    11311131It does not exist under normal execution conditions, i.e., when you're not
    1132 running unit tests. The outbox is created during test setup, along with the
    1133 dummy :class:`<~django.core.mail.SMTPConnection>`. When the test framework is
    1134 torn down, the standard :class:`<~django.core.mail.SMTPConnection>` class is
     1132running unit tests. The outbox is created during test setup.

    11351134restored, and the test outbox is destroyed.
