bugs.python.org is currently sending notification emails directly to
recipients, rather than routing them via the outbound SMTP server on

Reconfiguring it to relay notifications via the main outgoing server
is the longer term fix, but an initial attempt at enabling that
resulted in errors in the bugs.python.org mail logs, so David reverted
to the direct email configuration for the time being.
