Hello all,
 I wrote a simple python script to send mail via smtp to my gmail acc.I can run it as python /home/phil/Desktop/smtp.py but when I add the same to my crontab as

          * * * * * /usr/bin/python2.5 /home/phil/Desktop/smtp.py

 ,it doesn't run.I checked the process by using top command and python did start a thread but died soon.
 
 I need some help here.
 
The python script uses tls-lite lib to use tls over smtp.
