I took some pain to learn that in this day and age, some mailservers
will more likely classify your mail as spam, unless it comes from a dns
signed mailserver for a domain and has proper signatures (is that what
DKIM signatures are?).

Ignacio, your code assumes localhost is a properly configured
mailserver. This is not true for /vote/ vm. To avoid the Spam folder I
setup /vote/ to relay email to a gmail account. More or less what it
says here: https://wiki.debian.org/GmailAndExim4

At this time I went and tried it and it failed. There is an error in the
logs suggesting logging into said account could fix it (password is in
Anyhow it's probably better to route mail thru sunjammer.


Bernie, or anyone with access to DNSSEC signatures: I don't think I've
got access to sign the DNS records for sugarlabs. Membership Committee
is requesting to add an A record for *verify.sugarlabs.org* to IP (which is a vm hosted in Freedom). This is to conduct a
membership email update / verification with a Flask app (code by
Ignacio, published above).
