Have callback for email creation in generic views sending emails

I'd like to use EmailMultiAlternatives mails for my mails to have multipart with text & HTML (for nice looking mails but with simple text support).
But with generic views (and forms) like django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset, I can only give an email_template_name.

It would be nice to have a create_email callback to let me create the Email object that the view send.

Agreed with the use case, but the right solution would be to make the mail sending a configurable part of the PasswordResetForm.

The generic views don't send email — there's a confusion somewhere.

The concrete problem you're describing is tracked in #17431, with a more detailed description.
