Okay I will port awade's python mailer stuff for this purpose.

gautam 14Jan2018 1730: Python mailer has been implemented: see here for the files. On shared drive, the files are at /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/general/pizza/pythonMailer/

gautam 11Feb2018 1730: The python mailer had never once worked successfully in automatically sending the message. I realized this may be because I had put the script on the root user's crontab, but had setup the authentication keyring with the password for the mailer on the controls user. So I have now setup a controls user crontab, which for now just runs the pizza mailing. let's see if this works next Sunday...

I personally don't like the idea of having sendmail (or something similar like postfix) on a personal server as it requires a lot of maintenance cost (like security update, configuration, etc). If we can use external mail service (like gmail) via gmail API on python, that would easy our worry, I thought.
