+.. note::
+ In order to send e-mail, Django requires a few settings telling it
+ how to connect to your mail server. At the very least, you'll need
+ to specify :setting:`EMAIL_HOST` and possibly
+ :setting:`EMAIL_HOST_USER` and :setting:`EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD`,
+ though other settings may be also required depending on your mail
+ server's configuration. Consult :ref:`the Django settings
+ documentation <ref-settings>` for a full list of email-related
+ settings.
By default, Django will send email from root@localhost. However, some mail
providers reject all email from this address. To use a different sender
address, modify the :setting:`SERVER_EMAIL` setting.
