I've just released the (standalone) email package version 2.3.  This
is identical to the version that is in the current cvs development
tree for Python 2.3.  It is made available as a distutils package for
installing in earlier versions of Python.  It is compatible with
Python 2.1.3 and Python 2.2.1.

The email package is a new package for parsing, handling, and
generating email messages and other RFC 2822 style documents.  It
conforms to most of the email related RFCs including 2045-2047 (the
MIME RFCs) and 2231.  It is intended to replace several older modules
in the standard distribution, such as rfc822, mimetools, multifile,
mimify, and MIMEWriter, and such non-standard modules as mimecntl.

email-2.3.tar.gz is available from the mimelib project on SourceForge:
