This error occurs when Python discovers a circular dependency with the
For example, if your email sending script were named
email.py, Python would try to import your file when it executes the import statement for the
smtplib library. As a result, it creates a partially initialized module, and if your script does not have an attribute named
smtp, you will run into this error.
To resolve this error, rename your email sending script to a name apart from
email.py, as these are internal script files that make up the smtplib module. Doing so would help Python import the correct library and resolve the error.
