Please tell us what you do more precisely:
* do you send the "info" as an attachment using the email package?
* do you create alternative text and HTML parts for the body?
I have never managed to send plain text email and receive it as HTML.
Perhaps you mean that some "smart" client does something stupid with
your text, eg. it removes line-breaks you have in your message?
def send(server, from_whom, to_whom_list):
smtp = smtplib.SMTP(server)
Subject: test email
This is a test.
It has line breaks.
Does it come as three separate lines?""")
I tried it as
send('localhost', 'tzot at sil-tec.gr', ['tzot at sil-tec.gr'])
and I had no problem. What happens for you (substitute other server and
email addresses, obviously :) ?
TZOTZIOY, I speak England very best.
please stop spamming us."
