from os import path

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.filebased.EmailBackend'
EMAIL_FILE_PATH = path.join(ROOT_PATH, 'tmp', 'app-mails')

Also add django_outbox to your installed apps:


Add the django outbox url to your

from django.conf import settings

# This will prevent from showing the outbox in production. The outbox
# will only be available when the DEBUG setting is true.
