I worked on the following code. It works, but not for attachments.

On the webserver I have: http://python.pastebin.com/9m8MXxuR

And inside my program I then do:
form = urllib.urlencode([("from", send_from), ("to", send_to), ("subject",
subject), ("body", body), ("attachment", attachment)])
webbrowser.open(url + "?" + form)

So, 2 questions:
 - Is this a good way of sending mails over my webhost through my program?
 - Attachments don't work because I'm sending the path to the file, and
ofcourse the cgi script can't find it. How should I solve this?
