Can't load smtplib

S

S-boy

I can't seem to import smtplib in either a script or the command line
interpreter.

When I try to import smtp, there seems to be some kind of collision
with urllib2. I get a weird error about Web server authorization, even
though I'm not calling urllib2.

Any ideas on what might be causing this?

Here's the mess....
