Python has quite a few routines that handle e-mail which are well documented in the Python Library Reference: http://docs.python.org/lib/lib.html The ``email'' module does much the same as the perl Mail::Internet modules (I've written a wrapper for python's email library that basically implements the perl API to make porting my old perl routines to python :-). The ``poplib'' and ``imaplib'' modules make accessing POP and IMAP servers pretty easy as well.
