Heya Matt,

Sorry about that.  The problem is almost certainly on our side, not 
yours.  Unfortunately, the cause resists identification, though it 
appears to be somewhere within the trac registration system itself, not 
in the actual mail server software.

The Twisted project is somewhat lacking in administrative resources. 
Thomas Hervé kindly did some investigation into this issue, narrowing 
things down as far as trac.  Until someone finds time to look further 
though, this issue doesn't seem likely to get resolved.  This is rather 
unfortunate, since clearly it is obstructing a lot of new contributors.

If anyone is familiar with trac and could lend a hand, it would be very 
valuable and much appreciated.
