=== Foundation mail ===
Mail for employees etc. All mail to @wikimedia.org domains are delivered to [[​mchenry.wikimedia.org​]] (the MX record for wikimedia.org). From there, a few things happen
* The recipient is checked against aliases in /etc/exim4/aliases/wikimedia.org. These are mostly ops-related (eg noc@) or older aliases. New aliases for ops should go here; new aliases for the rest of the organization should be created in Google.
* The recipient is checked against LDAP. LDAP contains a few different address types
** some employees are identified as IMAP accounts and their mail is forwarded to sanger
* There's a sqlite db that contains filters and addresses to forward to sanger
** use 'wmfmailadmin' on sanger to modify these filters and such (it's rsynced back to [[mchenry]])
* Mail for Request Tracker is forwarded to streber
