Email Hijacker for Django

Project description

Django Email Hijacker

Django Email Hijacker lets you send emails via your favourite email backend but sends them to a specified email address instead of the intended recipients.

It allows you to send emails via a real backend from a development or staging environment without worrying that an actual user might get sent unintended emails.


pip install django-email-hijacker

In your development or staging

EMAIL_BACKEND = "email_hijacker.backends.hijacker.EmailBackend"

HIJACKER_EMAIL_BACKEND = "your.real.EmailBackend"
