All I see in this repo is a CSV parser?

I'm the author and maintainer of (in my biased view) the most complete
SMTP library for erlang, gen_smtp:

https://github.com/Vagabond/gen_smtp

gen_smtp includes both a SMTP client, and a callback framework for
writing SMTP servers. It's part of several other erlang projects now,
including Zotonic and Chicago Boss.

The other alternative worth considering is Geoff's esmtp:

https://github.com/archaelus/esmtp

I'm not aware of any other SMTP clients that are reliable or mature
enough to be considered for serious usage. There's a random smtp fsm
kicking around the internet, but its not maintained and the licensing on
it is uncertain (or its under the GPL, its unclear).
