There's an open feature request for an SMTP server mode in v2.7.0.

Quanah, and others interested in this: Can you give me more detail about
what it needs to do from an SMTP client perspective? For example, which
SMTP extensions are important to include? How many simultaneous
connections should it be expected to handle? How resilient does it need
to be to syntax and other I/O issues?

Building an SMTP server, even one without queueing, is a pretty huge task.
And this one will need to have an SMTP client as well, attached fairly
directly to each server instance. I want to spec this out clearly so that
I don't end up with a needlessly complex implementation that will be a
chore to maintain down the road.
