Hi guys,
I was making a program yesterday that would send an email using the email modules of python as well as the smtp module.
My problem is when i put it into an exe using py2exe and vega's code snippet setup i get some problems. This is the error message i get when i try and run the .exe file:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "email_program.py", line 2, in <module>
File "email\__init__.pyc", line 79, in __getattr__
ImportError: No module named multipart

The thing is that is works fine when i run it when it is not compiled into an exe. Im not that crash hot with py2exe so i was wondering is someone with a bit more idea with me could point me in the right direction. Here is my code for any reference.

import smtplib
from email.MIMEMultipart import MIMEMultipart
from email.MIMEBase import MIMEBase
from email.MIMEText import MIMEText
from email import Encoders
import pythoncom, pyHook
import os
global s
s = ""
gmail_user = "*************"
gmail_pwd = "************"

def mail(to, subject, text):
   msg = MIMEMultipart()

   msg['From'] = gmail_user
   msg['To'] = to
   msg['Subject'] = subject


   mailServer = smtplib.SMTP("smtp.gmail.com", 587)
   mailServer.login(gmail_user, gmail_pwd)
   mailServer.sendmail(gmail_user, to, msg.as_string())
   # Should be mailServer.quit(), but that crashes...

     'Hello from python')

Yeah, the problem seems to be that the email module is not being packed with the .exe file and i couldn't find a way to get it to be. Does anyone know how i can package all of the stuff i import?

Chris the first one worked a charm. Thanks!
