I'm running Askbot as an app on a larger project in a development environment. The EMAIL_BACKEND setting in this environment is the console backend. However, none of Askbot's email notifications get printed to the console; instead, they seem to disappear into the ether. Is there any way I can get these messages to print?

Maybe you have > 1 EMAIL_BACKEND in your or you are looking into a wrong file? This works for me:

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend'

Probably something in the project setup, then - I'll look into it.
