Sending the password reset e-mail asynchronous will improve the page load time very hard. This an nice feature for in an production environment.

I think that the best strategy is to add an variable to the setting file an then check if this variable is enabled. We could use this code:

        EMAIL_ASYNC_MAIL = getattr(settings, 'EMAIL_ASYNC_MAIL', False)

        if EMAIL_ASYNC_MAIL:
            thread = Thread(target=self.send_mail,
                                         args=(subject_template_name, email_template_name, context, from_email,,

An other option is adding sending asynchronous mail to django.core.mail.
