email console backend is silent

Some little time ago my admin site stopped sending password reset
emails. After checking all the credentials, ports, server names, etc it
is still silent.

So in the dev-server I set EMAIL_BACKEND =
'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend' and proceeded to
request a password reset. Nothing was emitted by the dev-server apart
from ...

Quit the server with CTRL-BREAK.

[26/Sep/2016 09:30:38] "GET /admin/login/?next=/admin/ HTTP/1.1" 200 2374
[26/Sep/2016 09:30:40] "GET /admin/password_reset/ HTTP/1.1" 200 1911
[26/Sep/2016 09:30:44] "POST /admin/password_reset/ HTTP/1.1" 302 0
[26/Sep/2016 09:30:44] "GET /admin/password_reset/done/ HTTP/1.1" 200 1784

How do I start debugging this?



EMAIL_HOST = (my ISP's valid, pingable smtp host name)
EMAIL_HOST_USER = (correct username issued by my ISP)
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = (working password)
