Weird question, but:

Do any existing

  • …other / higher-level libraries/frameworks/software
  • …websites or services (either directly / with an in-house implementation, or via a library/framework/software that builds on it)

currently use this?

Well, according to GitHub’s “dependents” page, there are 162 repos (27 packages) that depend on aiosmtpd. There are also some projects on GitLab that depend on aiosmtpd.

In any case, the motivation behind aiosmtpd is to be a replacement for smtpd in the Standard Library, as discussed in bpo-25008.
