Djrill 1-2-3ΒΆ

  1. Install Djrill from PyPI:

    $ pip install djrill
    
  2. Edit your project’s settings.py:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        "djrill"
    )
    
    MANDRILL_API_KEY = "<your Mandrill key>"
    EMAIL_BACKEND = "djrill.mail.backends.djrill.DjrillBackend"
    
  3. Now the regular Django email functions will send through Mandrill:

    from django.core.mail import send_mail
    
    send_mail("It works!", "This will get sent through Mandrill",
        "Djrill Sender <djrill@example.com>", ["to@example.com"])
    

    You could send an HTML message, complete with custom Mandrill tags and metadata:

    from django.core.mail import EmailMultiAlternatives
    
    msg = EmailMultiAlternatives(
        subject="Djrill Message",
        body="This is the text email body",
        from_email="Djrill Sender <djrill@example.com>",
        to=["Recipient One <someone@example.com>", "another.person@example.com"],
        headers={'Reply-To': "Service <support@example.com>"} # optional extra headers
    )
    msg.attach_alternative("<p>This is the HTML email body</p>", "text/html")
    
    # Optional Mandrill-specific extensions:
    msg.tags = ["one tag", "two tag", "red tag", "blue tag"]
    msg.metadata = {'user_id': "8675309"}
    
    # Send it:
    msg.send()
    

    (Be sure to use a from_email that’s in one of your Mandrill approved sending domains, or the message won’t get sent.)
