Reroute outgoing mail (for use in dev/testing/staging environments)
This app fills a very specific use case: you want to test email delivery in a QA environment and your clients, as admins, want to receive real emails, but you don’t want the QA process to trigger emails to real end users.
With a couple settings, you can ensure only email to specified addresses will go to the original recipients, and all others will go to a catch-all address or domain.
pip install django-hijackemail
Add hijackemail to your INSTALLED_APPS. In your environment’s settings file, set your EMAIL_BACKEND to hijackemail.backends.HijackEmailBackend.
Then configure the settings below as necessary.
- A string represented the dotted path to the actual email backend used to send messages. Default is django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend.
A function which takes an email address, and returns a transformed version of it.
- Instead of transforming the original email, just send all email to this address. Default is None.
- Use the default transformation with this catchall domain. Default is “local”.
- A list of email addresses that should not be hijacked. Default is empty list.
