How can we configure Django and Postfix to send emails for Django apps?

I can do it using Gmail server settings but when I want to send email from my own server using my own domain it's not happening. Can anyone help?

You can do this by adding  settings.py such as :

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'
EMAIL_HOST = 'localhost'
EMAIL_PORT = 25
EMAIL_HOST_USER = ''
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = ''
EMAIL_USE_TLS = False
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'Whatever <whatever@example.com>'
 

Also make sure that a fully qualified domain name  is set up on your server.

Then you need to have these lines in your /etc/postfix/main.cf:

myhostname = mybox.example.com
mydestination = localhost.server.com, localhost, example.com
