A Django Email Backend for Submail.

Project description

An easy django email backend to send email using Submail’s python Mail API.

Requirements

Django >= 1.8. Django with other versions are not tested.

Installation

Install the backend from PyPI:

pip install django-submail

Add the following lines to your project’s settings.py or your local settings:

EMAIL_BACKEND = "smbackend.SubmailBackend"
SUBMAIL_APP_ID = "Your Submail APPID"
SUBMAIL_APP_KEY = "Your Submail APPKey"

Usage

If you use send_mail method, you can simply do it by, for example:

from django.core.mail import send_mail

send_mail(
    "Your Subject",
    "This is a pure text email body.",
    "Dong Zhuang <hello@foo.com>",
    ["dongzhuang@bar.com"]
    )

If you want to use the EmailMessage class, then:

from django.core.mail import EmailMessage

mail = EmailMultiAlternatives(
    subject="Your Subject",
    body="This is a pure text email body.",
    from_email="Dong Zhuang <hello@example.com>",
    to=["dongzhuang@foo.com"],
    headers={"Reply-To": "dongzhuang@bar.com"}
    )

mail.send()

If you want to use the EmailMultiAlternatives class, then:

from django.core.mail import EmailMultiAlternatives

mail = EmailMultiAlternatives(
    subject="Your Subject",
    body="This is a pure text email body.",
    from_email="Dong Zhuang <hello@example.com>",
    to=["dongzhuang@foo.com"],
    headers={"Reply-To": "dongzhuang@bar.com"}
    )

mail.attach_alternative(
    "<p>This is an HTML email body</p>", "text/html")

mail.send()

Sometimes you need to send some other emails using APPID other than the default SUBMAIL_APP_ID set in settings.py, you can use add SUBMAIL_APP_ID and SUBMAIL_APP_KEY keys in header, for example:

from django.core.mail import EmailMultiAlternatives

mail = EmailMultiAlternatives(
  subject="Your Subject",
  body="This is a simple text email body.",
  from_email="Dong Zhuang <hello@example.com>",
  to=["dongzhuang@foo.com"],
  headers={
    "Reply-To": "dongzhuang@bar.com",
    "SUBMAIL_APP_ID": settings.ANOTHER_APP_ID,
    "SUBMAIL_APP_KEY": settings.ANOTHER_APP_KEY}
)

mail.attach_alternative("<p>This is an HTML email body</p>", "text/html")

mail.send()
