README.rst SMTP Server for Humans

This is the simplest SMTP server you'll ever see. It's asynchronous.

One instance should handle over one thousand emails per second.


Give your app an inbox easily:

from inbox import Inbox

inbox = Inbox()

def handle(to, sender, subject, body):

# Bind directly.
inbox.serve(address='', port=4467)

You can also defer to the commandline:

if __name__ == '__main__':
$ 4467
[2012-04-28 07:31] INFO: inbox: Starting SMTP server at


Installing is simple:

$ pip install
