Anymail lets you send and receive email in Django using your choice of transactional email service providers (ESPs). It extends the standard django.core.mail with many common ESP-added features, providing a consistent API that avoids locking your code to one specific ESP (and making it easier to change ESPs later if needed).

Get started

Install Anymail from PyPI

$ pip install "django-anymail[mailersend]"

The [mailersend] part installs any additional packages needed.

Edit your project's

    # ...
    # ...

    # (exact settings here depend on your ESP...)
    "MAILERSEND": "<your MailerSend key>",
    "MAILERSEND_SENDER_DOMAIN": '',  # your MailerSend domain, if needed
EMAIL_BACKEND = "anymail.backends.mailersend.EmailBackend"
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = ""  # if you don't already have this in settings
SERVER_EMAIL = ""  # ditto (default from-email for Django errors)

Now the regular Django email functions will send through MailerSend:

from django.core.mail import send_mail

send_mail("It works!", "This will get sent through MailerSend",
          "Anymail Sender <>", [""])

You could send an HTML message, complete with an inline image, custom tags, and metadata:

from django.core.mail import EmailMultiAlternatives
from anymail.message import attach_inline_image_file

msg = EmailMultiAlternatives(
    subject="Please activate your account",
    body="Click to activate your account:",
    from_email="Example <>",
    to=["New User <>", ""],
    reply_to=["Helpdesk <>"])

# Include an inline image in the html:
logo_cid = attach_inline_image_file(msg, "/path/to/logo.jpg")
html = """<img alt="Logo" src="cid:{logo_cid}">
          <p>Please <a href="">activate</a>
          your account</p>""".format(logo_cid=logo_cid)
msg.attach_alternative(html, "text/html")

# Optional Anymail extensions:
msg.metadata = {"user_id": "8675309", "experiment_variation": 1}
msg.tags = ["activation", "onboarding"]
msg.track_clicks = True

# Send it:
