I have not used mailer.py myself, but looking at its sample
configuration file, it seems pretty straightforward.

Taking a look at mailer.conf.example available here...

http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/hook-scripts/mailer/

...I would assume your conf file needs to contain the following lines:

smtp_hostname = smtp.google.com
smtp_username = svn.commit_at_gmail.com
smtp_password = secret

I do not see a way to configure the port number. Is this the part you
were stuck on? What happens if you use the three lines above and don't
specify the port number?
