Karrot.world emails are now handled by our own service

Hey everybody,

from today on, emails from and to karrot.world are handled by our own service. Let me know if you encounter problems!

Before, we used a free offer from Sparkpost, but that offer ends today. As there’s no good provider that lets us send around 20k emails per month for free, we had to find other solutions. We considered asking around for sponsorship, but it seemed more useful to me to not rely on proprietary services too much and instead roll out our own email-sending-and-receiving service. If the service proves itself well, we might also use it for related projects.

You can find more technical details in this issue and in this blog post.
