Frank, (and sac if I'm on that mailing list...)

For Nottingham we just maintained an /etc/aliases file on our
2013.foss4g.org server, and configured it for incoming and outgoing
email using postfix or qmail or some other MTA.

As the MX record for 2014.foss4g.org is currently a github server I
don't think that's an option. Where does mail to that go? Hmmm....

 So you 1) need to change the MX record for 2014.foss4g.org to a
machine that can handle mail, and 2) configure that machine to do
redirections (mail.osgeo.org?). 3) If that machine isn't in the conf
committee's control then osgeo admins will have to handle change
requests from the committee.

 We had some trouble persuading some bits of the internet that the
emails from our Amazon server weren't spam, but I think that was
partly due to me not having configured the outgoing mail properly.

Apologies for not adding this to the ticket, but my osgeo credentials
are elsewhere...
