Of course it is.

You can use the email and smtplib. A better API is provided by emails.
To start your script after booting, you can use:
  • a stupid init-script
  • /etc/rc.local
  • systemd
  • cron, google for @reboot cron

I prefer the emails package. To use it, you have to install it on your Raspberry Pi.
Also you have to check the settings. Some providers do have different ports.

You can install the package as root:
pip3 install emails
or as unprivileged user:
pip3 install emails --user
or you can use a virtual environment as normal unprivileged user:
python3 -m venv python_env
source python_env/bin/activate
pip install emails
Later you have to use the symlinked binary python in the virtual environment.
YourHomePath/python_env/bin/python YourScript.py
Then you can try this code, after you have filled in all credentials, host, port, etc.
Try this, if this works.
Then the next step is to check, if @reboot works with cron.

import emails
import datetime

now_str = datetime.datetime.now().isoformat()

# you can also use only text
html_message = '''
    <h1>Restart at:</h1>
    <p>{}</p>
    '''.format(now_str)
text_message = 'Restart at:\n' + now_str 
subject = 'Restart'
mail_from = ('My Raspberry Pi', 'am1982@t-online.de')
to = ['am1982@t-online.de']
smtp = {
    'host': 'securesmtp.t-online.de',
    'port': 587,
    'tls': True,
    'timeout': 5,
    'user': 'am1982@t-online.de',
    'password': 'MySuperSecretPassword',
    }

message = emails.html(
    html=html_message, text=text_message,
    subject=subject, mail_from=mail_from
    )

result = message.send(to=to, smtp=smtp)
print(result.status_code, result.status_text)

What's the error?
Example working:

But do you have a SMTP service provider?
If have then the simplest way.
# my_email.py
import smtplib

def send_mail():
    server = smtplib.SMTP()
    server.connect('smtp.host.adress')
    server.sendmail('from@smtp.mail', 'to@gmail.com',
    'Subject: Camera down')
    print("Mail sent successfully")
    server.quit()

send_mail()
