An SMTP daemon
PyMail is a simple SMTP server capable of handling the most usual scenarios in local domains. The aim is to have a feature-complete mail solution with minimal demands on system performance.
Linux, Unix Systems
- Python 2.7 or later
- C/C++ compiler (if eventlet package is not already integrated)
If you have pip installed, just type:
pip install PyMail
Similarly, if you have easy_install, it would be:
In the package directory there is a directoy etc containing a file pymail. You can take this as a starting point for your configuration. Copy this file to /etc and edit it to your needs. Putting it into /etc has the advantage of not having to specify the path on the command line when starting pymail. See the file doc/configuration.rst for a guide.
Finding the package directory
The pymail package is installed in directory site-packages of your Python environment. If you have difficulties finding the site-packages directory you can do as follows:
$ python Python 2.7.3 (default, May 5 2013, 17:16:24) [GCC 4.6.3] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import sys >>> print '\n'.join(sys.path) /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/beautifulsoup4-4.1.3-py2.7.egg /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/teleboy-0.2-py2.7.egg /usr/lib64/python27.zip /usr/lib64/python2.7 /usr/lib64/python2.7/plat-linux2 /usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-tk /usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-old /usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0 /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode /usr/lib64/portage/pym >>>
The line ending in site-packages contains the path of the directory where pymail is installed.
Installing from source on bitbucket.org
Either clone the project with Mercurial:
$ hg clone https://JohnnyWezel@bitbucket.org/JohnnyWezel/pymail
or download the source as a compressed tar file from the project site (https://bitbucket.org/JohnnyWezel/pymail) and then type:
$ ./setup.py install
You probably first want to prepare a virtual environment.
