[hcs-d] delayed e-mail

hermes.hcs.harvard.edu is our mail server. We're currently trying to
migrate off of it to newer, better, faster, more
power-efficient-per-cycle equipment. This is slowing mail down
somewhat.

Anyone who wants to join the raging debate about how we should handle
mail delay during the migration process is welcome to join our systems
list. Our policy is that everyone on the systems list should be known
to at least one of the core systems team at the level of having come
to an HCS meeting or just simply having met them. Also, you should
have a Harvard affiliation of some sort.
