Has anyone created a simple POP3 and SMTP server using TWISTED?

I'm sure you will get lots of technical answers to your problem. However,
surely it would be simpler to move to an ISP who will let you manage your
own domain. Many such ISPs exist, and even if they change their names you
will be able to continue using your own domain name.You should even be able
to continue using the same domain name when you move from one ISP to
another. So this isn't really a Python problem (IMHP).
