Dear Email-Senders,

I´m leavin this message just for the record in case somebody else is having a hard time 
with registration mail. I saw that mails were sent but never received.

The reason was the GeoNode standard registration mail triggered a high(er) spam level by the receiver due to:

- DEAR_SOMETHING	Contains 'Dear (something)'
- TVD_PH_BODY_ACCOUNTS_PRE	The body matches phrases such as "accounts suspended" "account credited" "account verification
- The mail contains an HTTP URI that uses an non-standard port (i.e. something other than 80, 8080, or 443). (it was 8000 from the dev server)
- Sender email is freemail
- The used yahoo account was found on one blacklist.

=> X-Spam-Flag=YES ;(

This was tested with Spam Assassin, other accounts might use a different rule set which ends in a different
spam rating.

Fixing those issues by rewriting the Email Body and using a clean smtp worked.
