Thank you but precisely, I was looking for a "ready-to-use solution in
Python" so that I wouldn't have to write it myself.

Also, I don't need a full-fledged SMTP server, just a tiny script that
will let me send the occasional e-mails from my e-mail client that my
ISP wrongly considers as SPAM.

So, does someone know of a good, SMTP server just to send e-mails?

Thank you.
