InstallationΒΆ

  1. You can either install from pip:

    pip install django-mailbox
    

    or checkout and install the source from the github repository:

    git clone https://github.com/coddingtonbear/django-mailbox.git
    cd django-mailbox
    python setup.py install
    
  2. After you have installed the package, add django_mailbox to the INSTALLED_APPS setting in your project’s settings.py file.

  3. From your project folder, run python manage.py migrate django_mailbox to create the required database tables.

  4. Head to your project’s Django Admin and create a mailbox to consume.

Note

Once you have entered a mailbox to consume, you can easily verify that you have properly configured your mailbox by either:

  • From the Django Admin, using the ‘Get New Mail’ action from the action dropdown on the Mailbox changelist (http://yourproject.com/admin/django_mailbox/mailbox/).

  • Or from a shell opened to your project’s directory, using the getmail management command by running:

    python manage.py getmail
