I have just come across and solved a problem that was throwing this same traceback. The error was indeed unrelated to SMTP. You see that email-related error for the simple fact that django is trying to log the exception via its default logging configuration which includes sending an email tot he admins of the site.

To help me in debugging my problem, I set DEBUG=True in settings and I then got the real problem reported: a couple of missing settings.
