Thanks for the reply. When I try this though, I get an error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./synctest.py", line 202, in ?
message = createhtmlmail(html, text, subject)
File "./synctest.py", line 49, in createhtmlmail
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/MimeWriter.py", line 100, in addheader
lines = value.split("\n")
AttributeError: 'datetime.datetime' object has no attribute 'split'
I'm trying to use a variable for the date, since of course, it should
always be 'now'.
someDate = datetime.datetime.now()
Hard coding a date, like your example, works just fine.
