When call SMTP.sendmail (with simple sendmail local sent and with smtp auth), the follow exception be raised (with debug output):

send: 'mail FROM:<xxx> size=5\r\n'
reply: '250 2.1.0 Ok\r\n'
reply: retcode (250); Msg: 2.1.0 Ok
send: 'rcpt TO:<xxx>\r\n'
reply: '250 2.1.5 Ok\r\n'
reply: retcode (250); Msg: 2.1.5 Ok
send: 'data\r\n'
reply: '354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>\r\n'
reply: retcode (354); Msg: End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
data: (354, 'End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>')

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#14>", line 1, in <module>
    s.sendmail(to, to, msg)
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 710, in sendmail
    (code,resp) =
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 474, in data
    q = quotedata(msg)
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 157, in quotedata
    re.sub(r'(?:\r\n|\n|\r(?!\n))', CRLF, data))
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 151, in sub
    return _compile(pattern, 0).sub(repl, string, count)
TypeError: expected string or buffer

This error appear because 'data' isn't an string object, just replacing "q = quotedata(msg)" for "q = quotedata(str(msg))" (in Python26\lib\ solves the problem, but i can't understand how this simple mistake does not be noticed
