This mail never gets delivered. Any ideas why?

Until you get a MESSAGE which has a " sign in it, or a FROM.
(Sorry, didn't see this message before.)
In order to prevent trouble with this, it might be better to use
subprocess and to do
sp = subprocess.Popen(['mail', '-f', FROM, '-s', SUBJECT,
'support at superhost.gr], stdin=subprocess.PIPE)
res = sp.wait()
If you do so, you can have FROMs, SUBJECTs and MESSAGEs conaining every
character you want, including " and ', an no shell will complain about
it or be confused.
(Note that I changed the arguments for mail a little bit, because -s
prevedes the subject and -f the from.)
