Depending on what you really want to do... 

If you want to send the mail via Outlook you should look up MAPI and
the PythonWin 'examples'. In the book 'Python Programming on Win32' By
Mark Hammond & Andy Robinson (which I soon will buy) you will find
more info about this.

If you just want to send mail, then Python has a module called smtplib
which you can use to send mail.
