Are you saying that it is policy of seasidehosting not to allow email

is a fairly basic server-side necessity and it is difficult to do much worth
doing with seaside without having some way of identifying users.

I'm kinda happy that a free hosting site doesn't let you send arbitrary
Otherwise, it would quickly become a spam source, which would in turn get it
shut down or at least RBLed right away as a spam source.

Spam sucks.  It has ruined the path that got us here, in ways that make it
difficult to move forward.
