Important Note

We have serious concerns regarding email spam. Our server uses a variety of methods to block spam (e.g., it does not accept email from open relays, it uses several databases to block email coming from blacklisted hosts and so forth). Moreover, our mailing lists are all moderated so that you can count on never receiving spam through them.
