django-rq-email-backend 0.1.3

Provides Django email integration for RQ (Redis Queue)



  • Install django-rq-email-backend:
pip install django-rq-email-backend
  • Add django_rq to INSTALLED_APPS in
    # other apps

You must then set django_rq_email_backend as your EMAIL_BACKEND:

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django_rq_email_backend.backends.RQEmailBackend'

By default django-rq-email-backend will use Django’s builtin SMTP email backend for the actual sending of the mail. If you’d like to use another backend, you may set it in RQ_EMAIL_BACKEND just like you would normally have set EMAIL_BACKEND before you were using Celery. In fact, the normal installation procedure will most likely be to get your email working using only Django, then change EMAIL_BACKEND to RQ_EMAIL_BACKEND, and then add the new EMAIL_BACKEND setting from above.


django-rq-email-backend was heavilty influenced by:



  • Fixed exception handler to bubble up error if send_email fails.


  • Fixed broken installation.


  • Renamed project to avoid potential confusion with django-rq-mail.


  • Initial release
