Sending Email and Password rest function

Hi, I use Django 2 and I deploy my application with nginx-1.20.1 in windows server 2016.

so when I try to change a password I get this localhost as link


So I need to change the localhost:8080 to my site adress (

How I could do this.

then how I could change the function of sending because after months of trying with Django I am not able to receive the messages in my email!!!, however with my python script I can send emails

So how I can change Django default sending email function with mine?

All my best

If you are using the system-provided password reset views, see the docs for PasswordResetView, particularly the section on Email template context.

If you’re using something you’ve created, then you would need to use a similar facility.

We would need to see the code you’re using, along with the appropriate sections of your settings.

this is the function that works

import smtplib
from email.mime.text import MIMEText
from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart
#from exchangelib import FileAttachment
def SendingEmail(request):
    address_book   = [request.GET.get('address_book')]
    sender   = request.GET.get('sender')
    subject   = request.GET.get('subject')
    body = request.GET.get('body')
    file_name = request.GET.get('file_name')
    dir_path = request.GET.get('dir_path')
        msg = MIMEMultipart()   
        msg['From'] = sender
        msg['To'] = ','.join(address_book)
        msg['Subject'] = subject
        msg.attach(MIMEText(body, 'plain'))
        # Send the message via our SMTP server
        s = smtplib.SMTP('XX.XXX.XXX.XX')
        s.sendmail(sender,address_book, text)
        messages={"message": 'successfully sent message to '+ str(address_book),"tag": 'success'}
        messages= {"message": 'Message Not sent!!!',"tag": 'danger'}
    context= {
    return render(request, 'Home/Emailing/part_Email.html',context)

python runserver

I found the mistake I did, I’d deleted the EMAIL_HOST_USER and EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD so I cqn send messages.

Now how I could change the localhost:8080 to
I am trying to use this function PasswordResetView but have some problems

How are you trying to use it? Are you trying to use the PasswordResetView directly, or are you subclassing it with your own view? How are users accessing that view? Do you have a path in your file for that view?

this function

class PasswordResetView(PasswordContextMixin, FormView):
    email_template_name = "user/password_reset_email.html"
    extra_email_context = None
    form_class = PasswordResetForm
    from_email = None
    html_email_template_name = None
    subject_template_name = "user/password_reset_subject.txt"
    success_url = reverse_lazy("password_reset_done")
    template_name = "user/password_reset_form.html"
    title = ("Password reset")
    token_generator = default_token_generator
    def dispatch(self, *args, **kwargs):
        return super().dispatch(*args, **kwargs)

    def form_valid(self, form):
        opts = {
            "use_https": self.request.is_secure(),
            "token_generator": self.token_generator,
            "from_email": self.from_email,
            "email_template_name": self.email_template_name,
            "subject_template_name": self.subject_template_name,
            "request": self.request,
            "html_email_template_name": self.html_email_template_name,
            "extra_email_context": self.extra_email_context,
        return super().form_valid(form)

and I created this file user/password_reset_subject.txt

MyAPP- Registration/Login App Password Reset

then I changed the password_reset_email.html

{{ protocol }}://{% url 'password_reset_confirm' uidb64=uid token=token %}
