Here's a quick and dirty hack. I haven't tested it and you will need to
change 'user' to your username and 'password' to your password.
According to http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/SMTP-objects.html
this should work. Of course it should catch the exceptions that might
be thrown and the parameters should not be hard coded, but I did say it
was quick and dirty ;)
