i've seen an example in python cookbook, but do not have the copy with
me right now. If you have that book, look at the example to send HTML
mails. keywords are htmllib and formatter/AbstractFormatter.
IIRC they mention it's not that perfect as doing the same with lynx.
Don't know if the onlineversion at activestate does have this example.

That would be 100% pythonic even w/o external stuff.
