There is more detailed information about sending email over SMTP with Django on the Django project website.

First start by adding the following to settings.py:


EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.sendgrid.net'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'apikey' # this is exactly the value 'apikey'

Then to send email you can do the following: Inside yourapp.views.py

from django.core.mail import send_mail
send_mail('Subject here', 'Here is the message.', 'from@example.com', ['to@example.com'], fail_silently=False)

You may also send emails with Django by using the django-sendgrid-v5 library, which utilizes the Web API instead of SMTP as the transport mechanism.
