Start reading related RFCs like RFC2822, RFC2045/6/7, RFC2231, RFC821
... and then read Python documentation and you'll find that most of
these RFC are supported/implemented by python modules like 

- email
- smtlib
- rfc822

As far I know the most complete mail client written in Python is Pyne,
wich is a news/mail client written with PyGTK.

I'm writing a newsreader (XPN), wich can send mail replies, maybe you
can read its code.
Never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself.
