The code was COPY and PASTE -> presume wrong

   When quoting an error message, get it all.  Since you omit the stacktrace 
part, we can't tell what line might be giving you that error

That is all the error code!!!

    Once you've noticed which line, just examine the types of each of the 
elements you're combining.  If you're using the + operator, and the left operand 
is a string, then the right one must also be string.  Figure out why it's not 
and you have your own answer

Do you really think that I didn't do it? What a... response. This + or , is 
really USELESS. Please don't bother to send useless replays
This is the line where I get the error: smtpObj.sendmail(fromEmail, toEmail,

  Three things:  When quoting code, do it exactly, and without wordwrap in your 
mail program.  There are so many typos in that code sample that it's     
useless, presumably because you didn't use copy/paste
