The documentation for EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD states that it is the: "Username to use for the SMTP server defined in EMAIL_HOST. If empty, Django won’t attempt authentication." Shouldn't that be Password? Maybe something like:
Password to use for the SMTP server defined in EMAIL_HOST. This setting is used in conjunction with EMAIL_HOST_USER when authenticating to the SMTP server. If either of these settings is empty, Django won't attempt authenticaion.
(I actually didn't check the code to see if that last sentence is true; I'm not sure what the code does if one of these is empty but the other is not.)
I'd also suggest that it would be helpful if the send_mail documentation (http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/email/) pointed to these settings. Not sure if that should be a different ticket?
