The SMTP proxy server in Python ( allows you to shed privileges and run as user nobody. However, if you are trying to use port 25, the server will shed privileges before binding the port, causing a bind failure. By moving the setuid code between the creation of the proxy server and the aysncore loop, we can bind a port below 1024 and run as nobody.
