Great post! Adding on to your note RE further exploration. For projects that outgrow sending email via a single Gmail account, check out github.com/anymail/django-anymail. After playing with a few packages to interact with Mandrill/Sendgrid/SES, I've found Anymail to be the most flexible.
thank you I didn't know about django-anymail i think that I will use it with my next project
