What is going to behind this address?
It says a non-public archive.

So it needs to be something people can send to without subscription.
It needs to go into a ticket system that can acknowledge the submission. (RT,
whatever).   We'll probably have to have someone delete the spam.
It might be worth having a return reachability check on the email to help
reduce the spam load.

It would be nice if it could show up in author's DT account to respond, on
record.
