Summary

Send an email using Gmail as the SMTP server. Because of the high cost of setting up the connection, the email is sent asynchronously. It is configured to use Django's settings file by default.

Setup

In a Django environment:

In your settings.py file, create two variables:

GMAIL_USERNAME = 'username@gmail.com'
GMAIL_PASSWORD = 'your_PaSsWoRd'

Non-Django envrionment:

Remove from django.conf import settings from gmail.py, and set the GMAIL_USERNAME and GMAIL_PASSWORD variables.

Example Usage

import gmail
to = "someone@example.com"
subject = "Hey!"
body = "Have a great day"
html = "Have a <strong>great</strong> day"
gmail.send(to, subject, body, html)
