I have not read this thread very closely yet, but I thought I would chime in.

I am working on a complete mail server suite written in python. The pop3 
server is working with a maildir backing store. The pop3 client "works" for 
now, using poplib.py, but I will soon have an async version that supports 
pipelining etc.  The smtp currently listener works for basic delivery, but 
some fancy configuration stuff still needs to be worked out.  It is all 
designed to be runnable as a single process with async listeners and 
http-based configuration -- click and run.

Now I ask: could this help solve the problems you are discussing? It could be 
used to make a smarter proxy that uses an intermediate store rather than an 
online connection to an upstream server. 

(Now I will go back and catch up on the discussion)
