Problem with smtplib: 550 'Administrative prohibition'

I have a script that checks a POP3 mailbox and sends the emails to
different people based upon some settings. For some reason my script
cannot send any emails, the error I am getting is:
reply: '550 Administrative prohibition\r\n'
reply: retcode (550); Msg: Administrative prohibition
data: (550, 'Administrative prohibition')
reply: '250 Reset OK\r\n'
reply: retcode (250); Msg: Reset OK
The only post on GG I could find says this may be caused by a conflict
with Sendmail. Does anyone know if this is true? Even better,
does anyone know a way around this? The machine this is running on is
hosted, so I cannot remove Sendmail or make any system-wide changes.
Thanks for any help,
