can be used to send mail via SMTP to a smart host. It is still based
on 'String', but it is a start. To send a simple message you can do:

 import Network.SMTP.Simple
 import System.IO

 main :: IO ()
 main = do
     sendSimpleMessages (hPutStrLn stderr) "" "example.com" [message]
     where message = SimpleMessage
                         [NameAddr (Just "John Doe") "johnd at example.com"]
                         [NameAddr (Just "Team") "team at exmaple.com"]
                         "My test email using Network.SMTP.Simple"
                         "Hi, this is a test email which uses SMTPClient."

I wonder what it would take to make it so that the message body could
be multipart mime...
