How to integrate it mailgun in Django ?

One of the coolest thing about Dango is that it has a global community support. So, what we can expect ? We can find pip packages for anything. To integrate mailgun with django we use pip package "django-mailgun". Let's see how to integrate it with django app.

  1. install package "django-mailgun"
    pip install django-mailgun
  2. Configure mailgun email backend in settings.py file
    EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django_mailgun.MailgunBackend'
    MAILGUN_ACCESS_KEY = 'ACCESS-KEY'
    MAILGUN_SERVER_NAME = 'YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME'
    EMAIL_PORT = 587
  3. Let's test our mailgun configuration by sending an email & open django shell by typing "python manage.py shell"
    from django.core.mail import EmailMultiAlternatives
    
    subject = "Hello, its me"
    text_content = "I was wondering if after all these years"
    sender = "[email protected]"
    receipient = "[email protected]"
    msg = EmailMultiAlternatives(subject, text_content, sender, [receipient])
    msg.send()
