What's wrong with External Methods? It takes all of about 5 seconds more than a TTW Python script. They're a necessary security precaution, but not all that burdensome. (You don't want your users having access to exec(), do you?)

You don't have to write the body in DTML. Create a method that does the body however you like and include it in the message by calling it with a dtml-var. You could use a Python script or ZPT or whatever.

How did you want it to work? There's DTML and there's Python libs. I can't imagine another way, but maybe I'm in too deep.
