probably. i've always been curious though about the threads in zserver, i
thought they were allocated to handle only zpublisher requests (maybe just
http requests). assuming you don't want to tie up the thread handling the
asyncore it seems you might need to create a pool of threads for handling
requests, or adjust your code to translate imap/smtp requests into zpublisher
requests so the default pool can be used. granted if you're not also running
a busy website on this than it probably won't be a concern as esp. if the
server operations are fast.

micheal already pointed out his imap code. i'd like to give warning that
handling imap properly with different clients can be a pain. the protocol is
a bit complex and there are some gray areas, which different clients handle
differently. pop is much, much simpler if you want to go that route (with the
option of just leaving mail on the server, you might be able to treat it
superficially like imap).
barry warsaw has an async implementation of a smtp server that he uses to
test out mailman, its on his homesite at
