-email -- a mail and MIME handling package
-Copyright (C) 2001-2006 Python Software Foundation
-
-
-Introduction
-
-    The email package is a library for managing email messages, including MIME
-    and other RFC 2822-based message documents.  It is intended to replace
-    most of the functionality in several older standard modules such as
-    rfc822, mimetools, multifile, mimify, and MIMEWriter, and other
-    non-standard packages such as mimecntl.  It is compliant with most of the
-    email related RFCs such as 2045-2047 (the MIME RFCs) and 2231.
-
-    This version is identical to the package available in Python 2.5.  It is
-    being made available as a standalone distutils package for use in older
-    Python releases.  A minimum of Python 2.3 is required.  Because the email
-    package is part of Python, it is covered by the PSF license for Python, as
-    described in the LICENSE.txt file.
-
-
-Testing
-
-    To test the email package, run the standard unit test suite from the
-    directory that you unpacked the source in (i.e. the directory containing
-    the setup.py file and this README file):
-
-    % python testall.py
-
-    You should see a couple of lines of dots followed by the number of tests
-    ran and the time the tests took.  The test should end with an "OK".  If
-    so, you're good to go.  Note that the exact number of tests depends on
-    such things as whether you have the Japanese codecs installed or not.
-
-
-Documentation and Examples
-
-    The documentation, including the major changes in the package over time,
-    can be found in the docs directory:
-
-    docs/index.html
-
-    If you're looking for examples, you might want to check out some
-    of the tests.  There are a few examples in the documentation as
-    well.
-
-
-Installing
-
-    To install simply execute the following at your shell prompt:
-
-    % python setup.py install
-
