Can you post the whole traceback?  Buildbot itself doesn't use that

Currently I am using an e-mail alert when the BuildBot build status changes (moves from success to fail, or vice versa), and failing will e-mail every time there is a failed build. I am encountering the following Python error when sending an email is attempted.
