Does MailHost do recieves as well as sends?

Forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference?

If this approach would let users email content into things like the PTK,
or more generally to create Zope objects by emailing content to an
address that corresponds to a Zope method or object then that's what I'm
on about.

Archiving mailing lists shouldn't be a big issue since there are already
Zope mailing list archives that are searchable in ways currently more
powerful than ZCatalog has to offer.

If it's not necessary, then don't do it, but if it is to get true
mailing of content into Zope then lets get started on it it now so the
end result arrives sooner...
