```
ksmtp test@test.com
ksmtp test@test.com -s "some subject"
```

Code Usage
==========

Sample Python Code:

import ksmtp
ksmtp.send(to="test@test.com",
subject="subject",
body="some message")

Sample Config
=============

Warning: make sure to backup this configuraiton file! Python's pip will overwrite it on updates to this package.

/etc/ksmtp.conf:

```
[ksmtp]

## from email address
from = username@gmail.com

## user
user = username@gmail.com

## password
pass = password

## server
server = smtp.gmail.com

## port
port = 465
#port = 587

## secure
secure = ssl
#secure = tls


## default to email address (if none specified)
#to = user@domain.com

## default catch-all (always CC)
#catch-all = user@domain.com

## default subject
#subject = default test subject
```

Issues
======

Gmail:
If you get an "smtplib.SMTPAuthenticationError" and your credentials are
correct, you may need to "allow less secure apps access" to your account.
