Required module need to be import at the beginning of the code.

import smtplib, ssl
from email.mime.text import MIMEText
from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart

Configured the email attributes like subject ,receiver email, sender email, password of sender.

sender_email = ''
receiver_email = ''
password = 'XXXXXX'  ## please put your password here.

message = MIMEMultipart("alternative")
message["Subject"] = "How to send mail from a Python script"
message["From"] = sender_email
message["To"] = receiver_email

Here two variable create one holding plain text and other holding HTML code these represents two different message body. Here will learn how to configure plain text and html text in email body.

Body_text = """
This is plain text messag and you are learing How to send mail from a Python script."""

body_html = """\
    <p>Hi Team <br>
       <h2> Please clink on link below to create gmail account. </h2><br>
       <a href="">Create Account</a> 


Now the final step is to attache these two body with mail content and send to gmail account.

## Turn these into plain/html MIMEText objects
part1 = MIMEText(text, "Body_text")
part2 = MIMEText(html, "body_html")

## Add HTML/plain-text parts to MIMEMultipart message
## Create secure connection with server and send email
context = ssl.create_default_context()
with smtplib.SMTP_SSL("", 465, context=context) as server:
    server.login(sender_email, password)
        sender_email, receiver_email, message.as_string()

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.


In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
