Email Hijacker for Django

Project description


For the latest source, discussions, etc., please visit the GitHub repository

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"


Django Email Hijacker uses Django Pods.

It allows for prefix style settings:

HIJACKER_EMAIL_BACKEND = "your.real.EmailBackend"

Or dictionary style settings:

    "EMAIL_ADDRESS": "",
    "EMAIL_BACKEND": "your.real.EmailBackend"
