So the client is connecting to both simultaneously?  "it" is ambiguous

It won't be a problem running the pserver on the client machine and this
should definitely provide a performance boost, as the pserver won't have to
handle requests from more than one client.

Not a problem.

I did some tests, and my smtp server returns a line like such:
(250, 'pintail.mail.pas.earthlink.net Hello apx1-04-57.pdx.du.teleport.com

This is a tuple, not a string, so you'll have to use smtpconnhelo[1] in
your regular expression.
This worked for me:

>>> smtpconnhelo = smtpconn.helo()
>>> m = re.search("[0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+", smtpconnhelo[1])
>>> m.group()
