I made the following modifications in settings.py regarding the email client .

EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.webfaction.com'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'noreply'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = '**********'
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'noreply@phonecpu.webfactional.com'
SERVER_EMAIL = 'noreply@phonecpu.webfactional.com'

And i get an " 535, '5.7.0 Error: authentication failed: authentication failure' " , to my untrained eye everything seems to be in order and i kinda got stuck on solving this problem.

Thank you in advance .

Never mind i found it. Not SERVER_EMAIL = 'noreply@phonecpu.webfactional.com'

But SERVER_EMAIL = 'phonecpu.webfactional.com'

"EMAIL_HOST_USER" should be the name of the mailbox you've assigned to the noreply@phonecpu.webfactional.com email address. You do not have a mailbox named "noreply", which is most likely the cause of the authentication error.
