So you're basically wanting another MTA supported?
This is quite a bit of work.
If it uses one file per message, base it on the and
If it uses two files per message, base it on the Postfix or Exim
support equivalents.

I didn't write the Exim support, but I did write the Postfix support
based on the Exim support, so you can do the same. The ZMailer support
was written by someone else too, based on my Sendmail support.

So other people have been down this road, you basically just need to
implement the same API.

Hope that helps get you started,
