I am currently experiencing this struggle. I did the following code:
EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com' EMAIL_PORT = 587 EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'email@example.com' EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = os.environ.get('EMAIL_PASSWORD') EMAIL_USE_TLS = True
As for ‘EMAIL_PASSWORD’ - I already set the EMAIL_PASSWORD environment variable in the shell that’s running runserver. I kept ending up receiving the SMTP error below:
smtplib.SMTPServerDisconnected: Connection unexpectedly closed
when I tried to run my Django - sending email using gmail. Am I missing something? Your help would be so much appreciated!
