I know its _not_ exactly what you're looking for, but check out
Starlane:

http://ciips.ee.uwa.edu.au/~joel/starlane/

and the my current test game:

http://ciips.ee.uwa.edu.au/~joel/starlane/Arcturus/

Its not a space-trading game, its more an empire-building game, but
there
is a strong commerce element since players buy and sell units amongst
themselves.  The news entries will give you a flavor of the game; most
of
the interesting negotiations and deals happen via email.

Cheers,

Joel Kelso
