Is there any current plan for bringing twisted.mail up to spec for production 
use?  In other words, is it known what can cause it to lose mail?  and if 
that is known, what kind of work would it take to fix that?

Are there other things that prevent its use, even in a limited form, in a 
production environment?

The project I am helping with that would potentially use twisted.mail is 99% 
twisted-based right now and it would be great to keep that trend going since 
twisted has been so useful for everything else we've used it for.  :)

We can certainly use a different solution for a mail server if need be for the 
short term, but we would be more delighted to be able to help twisted.mail 
fill the role of 'production mail server' for both us and others...

Thanks again,
