Automatic email upon registration and verification


I created this dummy registration with my email, checked my mail, and I cannot find a verification link. I cannot also find a place to activate this in my django admin.


Greetings, here are some things to check or try:

  1. Verify that your SMTP settings are using the correct key names and values.
  2. You might try using SSL if you are using TLS for the SMTP settings.

Thanks @tony-h. How do I get to edit SMTP settings, cant find them in my config.yml

They aren’t there by default. You add the configuration options as you needed them. Try these (for TLS). It should get you started.


@tony-h Thanks for helping out.

Hi @tony-h , I’m experiencing issues with mailgun . It cant send emails at all. Is this only meant to work with gmail ?

Hi @Lynx, I haven’t tried Tutor with mailgun specifically. I’m looking at mailgun settings for another project, and I don’t see why it shouldn’t work because it uses a standard SMTP server. The host needs to be valid, and the port has to be open.

SMTP hostname:
Port: 587 (recommended)
Default password: some-generated-key

Port 587 can operate without encryption, so there could be a protocol mismatch if you didn’t specify the encryption method explicitly. Mailgun also states that their “servers listen on ports 25, 587, and 465 (SSL/TLS)”. So, you might try using SSL on port 465.
