Though I'm still new to Python, I've had no trouble with the smtplib module.
I use code like the following (which I read about somewhere, probably in
this forum, thanks!) and have been sending quite a bit of mail with all
subject lines intact and no missing characters. (Although I would prefer a
separate subject property rather than lumping it in with the message. The
word "Subject:" gets stripped out automagically, though, so it works fine.)
msg = "Subject: Dead Parrot\n\n"
msg = msg + "It's not dead, it's sleeping."
mailfrom = "me at somewhere.com"
mailto = "you at somewhereelse.com"
host = "mail.bigserver.com" # SMPT mail host
server = smtplib.SMTP(host)
server.sendmail(mailfrom, [mailto], msg)
