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)
