Invite User Issue

I have configured my emails but when I go to Admin and try to send a test email no email is sent, also when I try to invite more users and type in there email address it just brings up a blank browser page that says “the website can not display the page”.

After this page comes up there is still no new users and no test email at my address, I have checked the junk folder and all but still no email. I have pasted my emails settings below(obviously not displaying my details for security reasons).

Kegbot local settings.

Safe to edit by hand. See for more info.

NEVER set DEBUG to True in production.

DEBUG = False

DATABASES = {‘default’: {‘ENGINE’: ‘django.db.backends.mysql’, ‘NAME’: ‘kegbot’, ‘HOST’: ‘’, ‘USER’: ‘root’, ‘PASSWORD’: ‘’, ‘OPTIONS’: {‘init_command’: ‘SET storage_engine=INNODB’}}}

SECRET_KEY = ‘z4+q0ay!q4h%ml9-i-4ih+p4=nk2a$h8_c5#[email protected]#&xp([email protected]+’

Tell Kegbot use the SMTP e-mail backend.

EMAIL_BACKEND = ‘django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend’

SMTP server hostname (default: ‘localhost’) and port (default: 25).


Credentials for SMTP server.


“From” address for e-mails.


Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.


Have you tried using port 587?

I have changed the port number and now it says the email has sent but no email is received by the person I invite.

Do you get the test email?

No im still not getting the test email either.

try making ssl true and tls false
and try port 587

I tried the suggested changes and they still did not work, I changed the ssl back to false and tls back to true and lef the port number at 587 and it has started to work fine. The only other change I have made is adding a WiFi dongle to get it off ethernet, I don’t know why this has fixed, but I am glad it has I am now able to ad users. Happy days.
