Relaying mail from apache.org.

One of the more common issues committers face at Apache is in trying to send mail from their apache.org account.  We've just made that process a whole lot easier by setting up an SSL-enabled, smtp-auth based mail submission service on people.apache.org port 465; which is compatible with gmail's recently announced feature to allow outbound mail from your apache.org address to be directed to people.apache.org, instead of to a gmail server, for delivery.  Say goodbye to all the ezmlm moderation battles: your SMTP envelope sender will now match your From header!

In the future we may wish to tighten up the SPF records for apache.org, so please take advantage of this new service for all outbound delivery of your personal apache.org email.
