SMTPRoutes is a light weight SMTP server built on top of Secure-SMTPD.
It's what you'd get if Sinatra and SMTP had a baby.
$ easy_install smtproutes
Note: You must use easy_install here. If you use pip there will be conflicting dependencies and things won't work.
Routes are specified via a regex provided in the route decorator.
from smtproutes import Route from smtproutes.decorators import route class ExampleRoute(Route): @route(r'myroute@.*') def my_route(self): print self.mailfrom.email
When invoked a route will have access to the following instance variables:
- self.message the parsed email message.
- self.mailfrom a contact object indicating who the message was received from.
- self.tos an array of contact objects extracted from the To field.
- self.ccs an array of contact objects extracted from the CC field.
- self.bccs an array of contact objects extracted from the BCC field.
Any named groups specified in the route regex will be availble as instance variables.
class ExampleRoute(Route): @route(r'(?P<prefix>open)@(?P<suffix>.*)') def open_route(self): print "%s at %s sent the message: \n\n %s" % ( self.prefix, self.suffix, self.message )
Email is vulnerable to spoofing attacks. SMTPRoutes allows you to provide an authentication object to protect against these.
An authentication class can be provided in the sender_auth kwarg of a route decorator.
@route(r'(?P<prefix>spf)@(?P<suffix>.*)', sender_auth=SPFAuth) def spf_route(self): print "%s at %s sent the message: \n\n %s" % ( self.prefix, self.suffix, self.message )
Currently the following sender authentication methods are supported:
- DKIMAuth authenticates using a DKIM signature. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DomainKeys_Identified_Mail)
- SPFAuth authenticates using an SPF record. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Policy_Framework)
- GmailSPFAuth authenticates against Google's SPF records, regardless of sender (useful for Google Apps).
You can provide multiple authentication approaches in the sender_auth kwarg, if any pass the route will be called:
@route(r'(?P<prefix>spf_google)@(?P<suffix>.*)', sender_auth=[SPFAuth, GmailSPFAuth]) def google_apps_spf_route(self): print "%s at %s sent the message: \n\n %s" % ( self.prefix, self.suffix, self.message )
The server is a thin abstraction on top of secure-smtpd (https://github.com/bcoe/secure-smtpd).
- SSL is supported.
- Basic SMTP authentication is supported.
Create an instance of the server using any of the configuration options specified in the secure-smtpd project.
from smtproutes import Server server = Server(('0.0.0.0', 25), None)
Once the server is created, you can register routes with it and start it running:
from example_route import ExampleRoute server.add_route(ExampleRoute).start()
The server will now be listening on port 25 for inbound SMTP messages.
self.mailfrom, self.tos, self.ccs, and self.bccs each contain instances of contact objects:
- contact.name the name extracted from the email address.
- contact.email the email of the contact.
self.message is available as an instance variable when a route is executed.
self.messsage is a subclass of email.message.Message described here: http://docs.python.org/library/email.message.html#module-email.message
- message.body the plain text body of the message.
- message.attachments the attachments on the message.
self.message has been extended upon to include an attachments property, which contains a list of pre-processed attachments:
- attachment.filename the filename of the attachment.
- attachment.data the binary data of the attachment.
- attachment.extension the file extension of the attachment.
- attachment.mime_type the mime type of the attachment.
