SMTP to HTTP gateway for your App Engine (and other) apps!

In response to a comment in the channel by someone wishing their App Engine app could receive email, I put together smtp2web, a simple service that accepts mail for an address (or your entire domain), and sends it via HTTP POST to a URL you specify. If you're running in a restricted environment such as App Engine, this means you can now receive email. Even if you're not, this is a lot simpler to use than writing your own SMTP server (or adding custom handlers to most existing servers).

Someone's already blogged about it, too.
