Send Email in Development server

Hi, I configured SMTP for email, and it works fine in the production environment but it’s not sending emails in the development environment.

Command used : tutor dev runserver lms

devstack uses filebased EmailBackend, therefore the mails sent are actually save in file system. You can confirm this by check EMAIL_BACKEND settings.

An option is you could run another container / service like mailhog and set that as the smtp server, and it will capture all the email.

I have used it for other projects, but not with Tutor, so not sure how easy it would be to add in to the docker-compose file.
