Let me ask the other way then - is it against testing philosophy to run
functions like t.m.smtp.sendmail from the unittest? It is
environment-dependent - however there are some cases when calling it
from the test is useful. 

If I shouldn't even think about calling such functions from the
unittest, maybe someone could point out a better method of testing?
