1. We couldn't easily gauge how many people would be interested in the
   service, so the goal was to avoid setting up infrastructure if only a small
   subset of users would be interested in using it. And that's largely proven
   correct, as only about 20 people requested accounts on, and only
   about 5-7 people use them regularly to send and receive mail.
2. Dealing with spammers is a huge effort sink, so if someone already has a
   good setup for recognizing and catching spammers, then we might as well
   delegate this to them.
3. Migadu offers open-source project discounts, so it's actually dramatically
   cheaper for us to use them than to run our own infra in terms of admin
   time. :)

Yes, I have no complaints about Migadu. They are great and I heartily
recommend it to others.
