Hey,

Don't know if you can help, but I'm trying to import archived messages
from Thunderbird into my gmail account and keep getting these types of
errors. *I am using the GML program to help incorporate, but the SMTP
server is not being recognized by gmail. *Am I doing something wrong? *
Anything else I can try?
SMTP I've tried:
* * smtp.gmail.com

Can you get the following program to work?
#Uses gmail to send an email to someone

import smtplib

sender = "Tom"
to = "Sally"
subject = "Test smtplib"

headers = "From: %s\r\nTo: %s\r\nSubject: %s\r\n\r\n" % (sender, to,
subject)
msg = headers + "Hello. How are you?"

mailserver = smtplib.SMTP("smtp.gmail.com", 587)
mailserver.ehlo()
mailserver.starttls()
mailserver.ehlo()
mailserver.login("your_gmail_email_address", "your_gmail_password")
mailserver.sendmail("your_gmail_email_addres",
"a_destination_email_address", msg)
mailserver.close()
