title='RFE: Extend smtplib.py with support for LMTP'updated_at=<Date2007-03-09.15:36:21.000>user='https://bugs.python.org/zwoop'
If you were mere requesting a feature enhancement, this
would belong in the RFE list and not the bug list. Since you
submitted a patch, and not just a proposal, this belongs in
the patch list. However, as a patch submission, it also needs
a patch to the documentation for smtplib (at least the
suggested new text if you can't do Latex) and 2) a patch to
the test suite for smtplib (assuming there is one already).
Suggestion: close this bug report as invalid and open a patch
item with the additional material.
Is the documentation provided in the patch for the LMTP
class not sufficient? I can extend on that if necessary,
although bear in mind that LMTP is very, very similar to
SMTP. The main difference is the support for Unix sockets.
As for adding test code, I could do that, although I'm
guessing most people will not have an LMTP capable server
running. If you feel strongly on this, I'll add something
that will check for port 2003, and submit the same test
message through an LMTP instance.
