Twisted Mail project provides client and server implementations of SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4
Twisted Mail project provides client and server implementations of SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4.
These differentiate themselves from the Python standard library implementations both by presenting a much higher-level, easy-to-use interface and in their server components, which allow the implementation of custom servers for each protocol without dealing with protocol-level issues.
Twisted Mail includes a simple demonstration email server which accepts messages over SMTP, stores them in a Maildir arrangement, and can serve them to clients over POP3.
What's New in This Release:
The IMAP4 client now properly quotes usernames and passwords when necessary.
It also handles unsolicited FLAGS responses.
The IMAP4 server can now parse multiple literals in a single command and to FETCH requests with multiple BODY parts.
A bug where Deferreds returned from IMAP4 client methods would not receive connection lost notification has been fixed.
Startup time on OS X has been improved.
The SMTP server has been sped up.
The POP3 mailbox API has been expanded to allow Deferreds to be returned in some cases.
