Motivation

= Problem: Bad control of what and how many e-mails have being sent to users.
= Solution: A simple table that log a summary of each e-mail had been sent.
A daily routine avoid this table grows uncontrolled and use the data to generate statistics.

= Problem: Important e-mails are deleted from the database when a user change his e-mail.
= Solution: A simple table that store all e-mails independently.

= Usually, good systems do not send attachments by e-mail because this a open door to attacks.

Configuration

    'django.contrib.auth',
    'django.contrib.admin',
    'email_manager',

# This attribute activates a listener to store all e-mails independently of auth_user database.

EMAIL_DATABASE_ACTIVATED = True

If you want to use celery for sending e-mails, you can customize the task name, example:

EMAIL_MANAGER_USING_CELERY = True # default = False
EMAIL_MANAGER_TASK = 'email-manager-task' # default = None
