PMMail and PMBounceManager objects for Postmark (
Works on Python 2.4 and better. Versions
2.4 and 2.5 will require the "simplejson"
library from
Python 2.6 has JSON support built in.
Version 0.2.0
- Merged with frozenskys/master to bring in PMBounceManager
- Support for multiple to/cc (limit: 20 per)
- Changed .recipient to .to (legacy support for .recipient left in)
- Tag support (.tag) added
- Fixed the email endpoint
- Fixed a Django backend issue for multiple recipients (max 20)
Version 0.1.6
- Added a new PMBounceManager Class that allows easy access to the PostMark
bounce API.
Version 0.1.5
- Added ".cc" property for carbon copy recipients. Changed django_backend to
support multiple recipients, and to use "to" rather than "recipients" on the django
mail object to prevent accidental leakage of BCC recipients.
Version 0.1.4
- Added ".reply_to" property. The "ReplyTo" custom header is unallowed by Postmark
now, and their documentation has been updated to reflect the change.
Version 0.1.3
- Major fix to the way properties were being used, fixes doc strings in properties
- "custom_headers" is now always a dict, even if set to None
Version 0.1.2
- Added 'custom_headers' property (must be a dictionary) to PMMail object
- Added optional 'test' argument to send function to print JSON message instead of actually sending it
Version 0.1.1:
- Initial release
Make sure you have a Postmark account. Visit to sign up for an account.
Requires a Postmark API key.
Import postmark.PMMail to use Postmark. Check
class documentation on PMMail object for more
The library can be used stand-alone with Django. You can also
add the settings:
POSTMARK_API_KEY = 'your-key'
to your file, and when you create a new PMMail object,
it will grab the API key and sender automatically. Make sure the
sender email address is one of your Sender Signature email addresses
in Postmark. You can also customize the name on the sender by
changing the format from '' to
'Sender Name <>' as long as the email part is
part of a Sender Signature in Postmark
To reoute all Django E-Mail functions like send_mail() and
mail_admins() through postmark use the following setting:
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'postmark.django_backend.EmailBackend'
But keep in mind that even when using standard Django functions
the sender must be registered with
One of the required values for attempting a send request is missing
Base Postmark send exception
401: Unathorized sending due to bad API key
422: Unprocessable Entity - usually an exception with either the sender
not having a matching Sender Signature in Postmark. Read the message
details for further information
500: Internal error - this is on the Postmark server side. Errors are
logged and recorded at Postmark.
A URLError was caught - usually has to do with connectivity
and the ability to reach the server. The inner_exception will
have the base URLError object.
Add automatic multipart emails via regex stripping of HTML tags from html_body
if the .multipart property is set to True
Refactor PMBounceManager Object and improve error handling within it.
Add PMBounceManager example to the Django test.
