Sending Mail to a Script

I'm trying to move everything from Webfaction to Linode, so trying to recreate some of the functionality I had there.

I have a simple page that is created from an email newsletter by a python script. It's a very simple process that Webfaction has available using mail2script.

What would I need to recreate that on Linode?

Do I actually need a mail server running?

1) email is received
2) send it to script (existing script does the rest)

Also found this script that is a replacement for WF mail2script that might be able to be adapted.
