Hi all.

I'm trying to find out if there's any interest in a kitchen-sink Python
module for mail handling.

I've got some code (for my company's internal product) that, with a
little bit of polishing, could handle most people's mail sending and
receiving needs in a pretty straightforward way.  Also I have not got
managerial clearance for releasing this code, as I'd like to see if
there's any interest before approaching them.

This module lets you send mail (using smtplib) and retrieve mail from
either a POP3 or IMAP4 server.  It handles encoding and decoding MIME
messages with attachments.  I wrote it because I needed something to
intelligently handle sending multipart MIME attachments.  It uses the
standard Python smtp/pop/imap/MIME modules, just basically ties them all

Probable code license would be BSDish.  Post here or email me privately
at pibble at yahoo dot com if you are interested.
