Hi all,

I just joined the group officially today. Been on the mailing list for a little bit longer. After joining I have a few questions:

1.) Mail Server

On the member page it says :
Mail sent to your PLUG email address (alex at plug.org.au) is being delivered to your PLUG home directory. You can read it by POP3 or IMAP to mail.plug.org.au, or by logging in to a PLUG machine and using mutt.

I have tried to configure an account on my mail client however it does not seem to connect. Is there anything special I need to do. I tried the default ports with and without SSL. At one stage I was asks to accept a certificate for plug.labyrinthdata.net.au rather then mail.plug.org.au. I accepted it in any case also this is something we should address. 

2.) Incoming mail

I then decided to email myself and got a bounce back. 

<alex AT plug.org.au>: host plug.org.au.s9a1.psmtp.com[] said: 550
   5.1.1 <alex AT plug.org.au>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local
   recipient table (in reply to RCPT TO command)

Is this supposed to work, or is this a work in progress.

3.) Mailing list moderation
I am still being moderated on the mailing list. 

4.) Discussion
Being new I am still finding my way around. Is there a place where us pluggers hang out. I had a look on the IRC and Mumble channels, but didn't find anyone. If there isn't that is not a problem, just thought I better ask than miss out.
