That error suggest that you are unable to connect to an SMTP server on 
localhost. It would be fantastic if you could have a brief look at the 
documentation for this module 
(http://docs.python.org/library/smtplib.html) and come up with a 
minimal working/failing example, along the lines of the following:

  from smtplib import SMTP
  smtp = SMTP('localhost')
  # ... fails

  args = ['host', 1234] # magical collection of better args...
  smtp = SMTP(*args)
  # .. works!

Either this seems to be primarily a local configuration issue, or we 
could do better at detecting these issues, or providing options to 
accomodate them. I would start by checking the ports that you have 
available, and whether sendmail is set up on localhost.

All best
