The activation email that is sent after registration is sent from 'webmaster@localhost' which encourages some spamfilters to treat the message as spam.

This looks as if you were simply not aware of the settings posted above.

I think he's referring to the Django website itself, which apparently has not allowed anyone to sign up since last week's move. See here:
http://www.djangoproject.com/accounts/register/

I'm not sure if the problem is that Trac sends the account confirmation email from "webmaster@localhost," which is then eaten by spam filters, or what. But I've tried four times since Sunday to create a new account, using two different email addresses, and I have not received the confirm email for any of them.

Someone, hopefully you, signed up for a new account at http://www.djangopro=
ject.com/ using this email address. If it was you, and you'd like to activa=
te and use your account, click the link below or copy and paste it into you=
r web browser's address bar:

http://www.djangoproject.com/accounts/activate/XXX

If you didn't request this, you don't need to do anything; you won't receiv=
e any more email from us, and the account will expire automatically in thre=
e days.

Seen this contact site listed on the Gary Clail website, and was wondering if I could get 'follow up' comments I made in 2002 deleted? Thanksin advance? Frances C.

Closing again. Not sure why this post seems to attract bots. Wish trac had a way to lock issues.
