comment Why are my emails generated with Python stuck in mail queue
Try sending a mail manually like suggested by vonbrand below. If you get your mail out this way, you can look into you python script. If you don't manage to get it out, you should get a proper error message.

comment Why do I have 9 bash processes, why does one of them take up so much CPU and how do I stop them?
Does ps uxf work on your system? Does crontab -l list any entries?

pstree outputs a tree. Using grep on that makes no sense. Find your "bad" bash and go up the tree to see who spawns that bash. Also have a look at ps uxf.

comment ssh public key not getting copied over
In case of a shared account you probably should ask your colleagues and fix that account together.

comment ssh public key not getting copied over
It is probably your personal account on the server, i.e. no one else but you alone will use that account. Keys do not "use" folders. Most probably the folder will only contain a single file containing your key.

If no important data is in the remote ~/.ssh/. Simply delete that directory and let ssh-copy-id recreate it. It will set up permissions correctly.
