SMTP (RFC 2821) doesn't support non-ASCII envelope addresses.  A better behavior here would be for connection.login to raise a ValueError or a TypeError whenever a non-str is passed in.

RFC 5336, though, adds the UTF8SMTP extension, which adds support for UTF-8 encoded unicode mailboxes.  If the server advertises the UTF8SMTP capability, then smtplib could encode unicode using UTF-8 and pass it on.

This is really a feature request (RFC 5336 support), not a bug.
