  1. Add the following settings to your settings.py:
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'postgun.backends.MailgunEmailBackend'
MAILGUN_DOMAIN = 'example.com'
MAILGUN_API_KEY = 'key-my-api-key'
MAILGUN_PUBLIC_KEY = 'pubkey-my-public-key' #Only needed for email validation

Sending Email

from postman import send_mail
response_data = {}
send_mail('Test Email',  #subject
      'This is your test message.', #text content
      'admin@example.com',  #from address
      ['james@example.com', ],  #recipients

      reply_to='jacob@example.com', #Reply to address
      response_data=response_data, #Variable to save response data from mailgun i.e. id and message
      )

Getting Email Events

Pull in Mailgun Events for a given period of time and by filter. Accepts all of the regular Mailgun API arguments for events and collects results spread across multiple pages into a single list for processing.

  • begin: datetime The time to start getting events.
  • end: datetime The time to grab events until.
  • ascending: True/False Ascending or descending (defult True)
  • limit: integer Limit to x number of items per page (default 300)
  • field: string Mailgun field filters (default no filter)
import datetime
from postman.events import get_events

begin = datetime.datetime.now() - timedelta(days=1)

items = get_events(begin=begin, limit=100)
for event in items:
  #Process individual JSON events here

Validating Email

Validate email checks against the Mailgun validation API to see if an address is valid.

If an address is invalid and there are no suggestions a ValidationError is raised. If an address is invalid and there are suggestions a ValidationError is raised with the suggestion in the message. Returns True on valid email or ConnectionError, AttributeErrors

from postman.validators import validate_email_mailgun
is_valid = validate_email_mailgun('james@hotmail.co.uk')
