[Zope] question on simple_send in MailHost

I did try send() - it seems one must know something about RFC822 message 
formatting to use it...?
I know nothing about that, and could not quickly find any clear and 
concise howtos or tutorials, just verbose and confusing specs and 
mailing list posts and so on.

I tried using send() with the same plain text body and from and to 
strings I was using for simple_send()...in case it might work...
When the mail arrived, some of the header content was in the body and 
not in the header.
It did arrive at all addresses in the To: field, I will admit... :-)
But the header was broken somehow, I assume because I didn't know how to 
format it correctly.
That was all the time I had to mess with it for now.
