You're probably running the TimC client.  If so, then its not a 
problem.  It's trying to mail a status message using the information 
in the INI file (every 10000 bytes -- about 20 blocks).  Either you 
haven't edited the file properly, or your SMTP server isn't 
reachable.  In either case, it has little affect on the actual 
cracking stats.  Delete the ini file and the error will go away, or 
edit it and you'll be mailed the log.
