Description (last modified by fhd)

Background

Currently, every server sending emails (Trac, Discourse, cron jobs etc.) sends them directly. However, for various reasons, these emails are sometimes considered spam. If we use a central mail server for all this, it's much easier to ensure the IP isn't blacklisted etc.

What to change

Set up a dedicated mail server, and make all other servers deliver email via it.

Note that setting up DKIM and SPF would also help with not being regarded spam - and this also requires a single mail server to be manageable.

Today I was unable to register here with my main e-mail address (x@…, where x is dimentiy). Sad news, other hosts can send me emails (including spam robots, unfortunately).
