#Python script to send simple emails

"""
Note that by default, this looks to check your netrc credentials
to use this feature, create a .netrc file, so that only you can read and write it
touch ~/.netrc
chmod 600 ~/.netrc
and then add the information for the gmail smtp server, i.e.
machine smtp.gmail.com
login yourusername@gmail.com
password yourpassword
This way only you will have access to this file. Do not use your actual account
password, instead create an application specific password for your Google
account at: https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords
For SMS support, use your service providers gateway.
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways
Notice that this can be used either as a command line script, as documented
in the main doc string, or as a python module. To use as a module:
import emailme
emailme.send_email("message")
or
emailme.send_sms("message")
