@Steven R. Brandt this is marked as “major” ie release relevant and needs to be fixed before the release.
@Steven R. Brandt this is marked as “major” ie release relevant and needs to be fixed before the release. If indeed major then a solution should be provided (eg using Debian’s default Exim mail server, which will be happy to help set up since I use it myself) or downgrade this ticket.

@Roland Haas I would be happy to see Exim used if you have time and interest.
Please have a look at the branch rhaas/debian10 which sets up and uses exim. Works to send email if I start the docker container on my workstation and replace the smarthost setting so that it matches NCSA’s smarthost.
Had to make one more change to start the exim4 service in startup.sh.
The ET website has been using the docker image in git hash b285760 "etk-website: start exim4 when container starts" of et-websites as of Feb 9 2021 and the corrected version that fixes issues with sending email to einsteintoolkit.org domains from inside of the web server in git hash 5f5a441 "etk-website.docker: do not use exim4 as einsteintoolkit.org mail endpoint" of et-websites since March 5th 202 which fixed these issue.s
