Never mind, I suck. I finally noticed that it was of course immediately
returning from the reactor.connectTCP() and immediately printing
"Returned from sending email", then getting around to actually running
the MySMTPClientFactory stuff. I guess I have to learn about using
deferreds. Thanks again for your previous help.
