I recommend the example in the Python Library Reference as a better example: 
http://www.python.org/doc/lib/SMTP-example.html.  You can also find the 
entire description of the smtplib module in the same section 
(http://www.python.org/doc/lib/module-smtplib.html).

Xah Lee's example is missing:
    - The login() call needed by SMTP hosts that require authentication.
    - The 'From:' and 'To:' addresses in the header of the email.  They
      are not mandatory, but you would probably use them.
