Here's a minimal example:
from logging.handlers import SMTPHandler
if __name__ == "__main__":
mail_handler = SMTPHandler(
"navigator at example.com",
"captain.nemo at example.com",
root = logging.getLogger()
# will print amessage
root.warn("this is fishy")
# will print a message and send an email
root.critical("giant squid sighted")
