# django-celery-email - Django Celery Email Backend

A Django 1.2+ email backend that uses a Celery queue for out-of-band sending of the messages.

## Using django-celery-email

To enable django-celery-email for your project you need to add djcelery_email to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ("djcelery_email",)


You must then set django-celery-email as your EMAIL_BACKEND:

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'djcelery_email.backends.CeleryEmailBackend'


By default django-celery-email will use Django's builtin SMTP email backend for the actual sending of the mail. If you'd like to use another backend, you may set it in CELERY_EMAIL_BACKEND just like you would normally have set EMAIL_BACKEND before you were using Celery. In fact, the normal installation procedure will most likely be to get your email working using only Django, then change EMAIL_BACKEND to CELERY_EMAIL_BACKEND, and then add the new EMAIL_BACKEND setting from above.

If you need to set any of the settings (attributes) you'd normally be able to set on a Celery Task class had you written it yourself, you may specify them in a dict in the CELERY_EMAIL_TASK_CONFIG setting:

CELERY_EMAIL_TASK_CONFIG = {
'queue' : 'email',
'rate_limit' : '50/m',
...
}


After this setup is complete, and you have a working Celery install, sending email will work exactly like it did before, except that the sending will be handled by your Celery workers.
