mod_smtpd is a modular SMTP server similar in spirit to qpsmtpd.

For developers it offers a dependable platform to quickly write a custom SMTP application without the burdens of portability, protocol, daemonization and/or process scheduling.

For system administrators it precludes the need for a separate SMTP daemon and also allows for simple replacement of SMTP backend without having to switch SMTP daemons (just load a different queue module!).
