+Here are a few examples of how to use the :mod:`email` package to read, write,
+and send simple email messages, as well as more complex MIME messages.
+First, let's see how to create and send a simple text message:
+.. include:: ../includes/email-simple.py
+Here's an example of how to send a MIME message containing a bunch of family
+pictures that may be residing in a directory:
+.. include:: ../includes/email-mime.py
+Here's an example of how to send the entire contents of a directory as an email
+.. include:: ../includes/email-dir.py
+And finally, here's an example of how to unpack a MIME message like the one
+above, into a directory of files:
+.. include:: ../includes/email-unpack.py
