Hi all,

I need to write a program to send an email with an attached ascii file.

I tried the example using MIMEText given at 
but this includes the ascii file *inside* the message. This is not what I 
want, I want it attached.

I then tried the example using MIMEMultipart given at
but this example does not run on my system (Python 2.2.1 on Linux). I 
receive a message :
ImportError: No module named MIMEMultipart 

Can someone help ? 
Thanks in advance
