From Sending Email in Jupyter to Sending Email in Linux Service

I'm learning Zawinski's Law, Python's SMTP library, and systemd. I'm using JupyterLab to show how to work with mail-from and mail-to files, move them into a Linux container pulse folder, and create a sendmail.py file. Come read my blog post to find out how I'm testing my work!

So long as we send from a gmail account, we have reliable and sufficiently permissive infrastructure to tap. Jumping into WebDev already? Take a moment to learn Linux basics with me, especially the world-changing Linux service management system called systemd.
