TMail and the SMTP server for email are for different things.

TMail is primarily used to make it easy to build email.

The SMTP protocol for EM is used to create SMTP servers.

As far as EM within Nitro/Og....

If one uses evented_mongrel or swiftiplied_mongrel with Nitro, then
Nitro is running inside an EventMachine event loop, and an other EM
stuff can then be used, as well.
