Project description

SMTP servers impletement base on Gevent


pip install gsmtpd


Basically gsmtpd is ported from Python standard lib smtpd, you can it check from Doc

however there is only one difference, you should add monkey patch of gevent

from gevent import monkey


from gevent import monkey
from gsmtpd.server import SMTPServer

class DebuggingServer(SMTPServer):
    # Do something with the gathered message
    def process_message(self, peer, mailfrom, rcpttos, data):
        inheaders = 1
        lines = data.split('\n')
        print '---------- MESSAGE FOLLOWS ----------'
        for line in lines:
            # headers first
            if inheaders and not line:
                print 'X-Peer:', peer[0]
                inheaders = 0
            print line
        print '------------ END MESSAGE ------------'

if __name__ == "__main__":

    server = DebuggingServer()
