INSTALLED_APPS in your settings file:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'email_log', )
Then set django-email-log as your email backend in your settings file:
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'email_log.backends.EmailBackend'
By default attachments will not be saved to the database. If you want all attachments to be saved to the database, just set this to true:
EMAIL_LOG_SAVE_ATTACHMENTS = True
And using this setting you can configure path to your attachments:
EMAIL_LOG_ATTACHMENTS_PATH = "path/to/attachments"
Using with other email backends¶
By default django-email-log uses Django’s SMTP backend to send emails. The
EMAIL_LOG_BACKEND setting should be specified if you are using a custom
email backend. For example:
EMAIL_LOG_BACKEND = 'yourapp.backends.YourCustomEmailBackend'
If you are using an email queueing backend such as django-celery-email, the django-email-log backend should be used behind the queuing backend so errors will be logged properly. For example with django-celery-email this should work:
CELERY_EMAIL_BACKEND = 'email_log.backends.EmailBackend'
