Send out a plain old text email. It uses sendmail by default, but
if that fails then it falls back to using smtplib.
from_address: the email address to put in the "From:" field
to_addresses: either a single string or an iterable of
strings to put in the "To:" field of the email
cc_addresses: either a single string of an iterable of
strings to put in the "Cc:" field of the email
subject: the email subject
message_body: the body of the email. there's no special
handling of encoding here, so it's safest to
stick to 7-bit ASCII text
# addresses can be a tuple or a single string, so make them tuples
