I am currently experiencing this struggle. I did the following code:

EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
EMAIL_PORT = 587
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'xxxxxxxx@gmail.com'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = os.environ.get('EMAIL_PASSWORD')
EMAIL_USE_TLS = True

As for ‘EMAILPASSWORD’ - I already set the EMAILPASSWORD 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!

I understand that this might be a problem with the STMP server not responding, but I think that this traceback should not appear in the logs, an single line ERROR log should be enough in my opinion.

Thank you @carolynsteph16 for your response! Yes this makes sense but here’s the traceback I have - pls click the link and you will see all of it. Pls let m know if you are familiar with this error:

Has there been a solution for this problem yet? I am facing the same issue when trying to configure Django mailing using the smtp-relay.gmail.com server, the issue smtplib.SMTPServerDisconnected: Connection unexpectedly close appears
