(please forgive the unclear thought process i am still trying to figure out
what i need done and the order there of)
i am going to set up a network of "zigbee" nodes.
when a event such as: motion movement or touch awakens node 
i want it's alert to the network to trigger a programmed response.

what i have to figure out is 
using a database maybe mysql or (cherrypy seems interesting as a http frame
(can it send pop3 or imap? do i need a database if it does?).
to store the node id's numbers and the email address i want sent.
i need that node number to send it's associated email message to me at my

so i believe that the zigbee node's have id already pre-programmed
so that should not be an issuse.

once the event (i'll need to have a program to take that report? or does the
database do that already?) has been reported to the database, 
the node id should trigger an email? (do i need an email client to send that
or does sockets have some thing to do with that?) that's really all that i
can think i need which most likey means i am missing the boat.

so i figure that i need to study as well as python.
email clients? or protocol? 
am i missing anything?
thanks any bits of info helps just an non-cpu kinda guy with a plan.
