I am trying to send email from Django by setting up Gmail smtp. But every time it is returning me 0 status. I have searched different relevant answers in StackOverflow and I am setting up the smtp server the same way but still, it is not sending an email. Below is my setting file
EMAIL_USE_TLS = True
EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
EMAIL_PORT = 587
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'my gmail account'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'my gmail account password'
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'my gmail account'
DEFAULT_TO_EMAIL = 'to email'
Below is my code
from django.conf import settings
from django.core.mail import send_mail
print "Sending Email"
mail_title = 'Test Email'
message = 'This is a test email.'
email = settings.DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL
recipients = [settings.DEFAULT_TO_EMAIL]
print send_mail(mail_title, message, email, recipients, settings.EMAIL_HOST_USER, settings.EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD)
print "Email Sent"
But every time it prints status 0 which means email is not sent. About the environment, I am running this code on Amazon EC2 instance which has ubuntu as an OS and Apache as a server.
Do I need to do additional setups for sending email through Gmail smtp?? Much appreciate your help Thanks in advance
