i tried to parse (below) with the regular expression: emails = 
re.findall('\S*\s(\w+@\w+\.\w+)', senders)

and got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/Life/School/Homework/Spring 2006/OPIM 
399/Tutorial/IMAP/scannermailer.py", line 19, in -toplevel-
     emails = re.findall('\S*\s(\w+@\w+\.\w+)', senders)
   File 
"/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/python2.4/sre.py", 
line 167, in findall
     return _compile(pattern, flags).findall(string)
TypeError: expected string or buffer


any help would be appreciated.
