A few weeks ago we had a discussion on this list about a way of 
getting mail into Zope. We've been doing some work in this, resulting 
in "ZMailIn".

We've put a preview version of ZMailIn up on Zope.org, at 

ZMailIn allows you to send an email into Zope. Specifically:
   - the mail system (Exim, Sendmail, etc.) passes the email to a Python
   - this script uses HTTP POST to call a DTML method that creates an instance
     of a ZClass containing the mail

This code is pre-release, and has been lightly tested. Its intended for people
who are curious about how this work is progressing and/or want to 
have input into the design process.

At the moment things are very simple, and most of what should be 
configuration is in fact hard coded - the intention at this stage is 
to get something working. The remaining work is to:
   - deconstruct the email into its bits (attachments, multipart MIME, etc.)
   - allow the configuration to be done in Zope, so more than one email address
     can be used, to call different DTML methods.
   - whatever other changes are required
