It's not that it loses mail, though it might do so. It's that we haven't
tested it enough to be certain of its stability (it hasn't been used
enough to be trust worthy). So it might have a bug which causes mail
loss and we wouldn't know about it.

Jean-Paul Calderone is currently putting a lot of work into all of
Twisted's mail code (protocol support and twisted.mail). He would be the
person to talk to in terms of missing functionality, help needed and
potential issues, etc.. But he's on vacation for a week.
