Wait, I think we're talking two different things here ... at least, I hope JD 
is ... SMTP AUTH is required to send email *through* any of our servers, except 
MX ... but, what Magnus was proposing would have required CMD to setup their 
MTA to do an SMTP AUTH to postgresql.org's MTA to send @postgresql.org ...

ie. if  sent out email, it would deliver to his local MTA, 
with his local MTA connecting to postgresql.org MTA, who would then deliver it 
out to the world ...
