I didn't ask if you can READ email using Thunderbird, I asked if you can
SEND email using Thunderbird, *specifically* sending using the same mail
server as your script is trying to do.
There is no point checking that Thunderbird can send email as
"nikos.gr33k at gmail.com" using the gmail server. You have to check whether
it can send email as "mail" (notice that it is just a local name, not a
full email address), using /usr/sbin/sendmail on whatever machine you
happen to be using.
A second question... what happens if you try to send email using sendmail
directly from the command line? If this is a hosted server, are you sure
that they have enabled sendmail on the hosted server?
What happens if you try to send email using the email library, as seen
instead of using popen to talk directly to sendmail?
