Hi, Alon !

There is nothing wrong with your code -- it worked for me a minute ago. And I should tell you, the output is rather verbose.
You may want to check if your MTA (Mail Transport Agent) is up and running. For example, like this (from shell):

user at hostname:~$ telnet localhost smtp
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 your-hostname ESMTP Sendmail X.Y.Z; Thu, 1 Aug 2002 17:48:48 -0500
^^^
If you do not see ``220'', then something is wrong with your MTA.
(To quit telnet, you should do ^] (Ctrl+]), and then ^D (Ctrl+D)
