    smtplib


    Hi,

    Am I the only one who cant send an email with Python? I dont know how many of you have tried this but.. let me explain, I want to send an email from an application on Windows using an external mail server (web based mail.hotmail.com should work).. the problem is that smtplib crashes the windows Kernal and shuts down without delivering the message

    I've looked around on the Python newsgroup but couldn't find the answer, is this just a bug in Python 2.2.2 or what? cos its very anoying..

    Thanks for any help in advance ppl,

    Take care,
    Mark.

    I posted this on the Python bug board. We concluded that it's my windows box because noone else has reported such an error. I have tested it in winXP and it works fine, am yet to test on 98 but yeah. Not a problem.
