I pasted your code into a file named temp.py, 
and (perhaps superstitiously) added a backslash to this line:
>> print 'Starting SMTP mail session on %s as  %s ' %

Here's what it does (long line wrapped manually):

    peter at eleodes:~$ python temp.py
    Starting SMTP mail session on smtp.gmail.com as  ... at gmail.com
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "temp.py", line 27, in ?
        session.login(SMTPuser, pw)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/smtplib.py", line 591, in login
        raise SMTPAuthenticationError(code, resp)
    smtplib.SMTPAuthenticationError: (535,                          \
       '5.7.1 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at\n'  \
       '5.7.1 http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=' \
       '14257 a8sm34686663poa.12')
    peter at eleodes:~$

This indicates that it got much farther than when you ran it, since
your timeout message comes from the smtplib.SMTP call several lines
before the session.login call.

As a simple connectivity test, you might see whether you can connect
using telnet:

    peter at eleodes:~$ telnet smtp.gmail.com 587
    Trying 72.14.253.109...
    Connected to gmail-smtp.l.google.com.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 mx.google.com ESMTP m27sm34789033pof.6
    ^]c

    telnet> c
    Connection closed.
    peter at eleodes:~$
