What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
==================================================================================
We currently send welcome emails to new accounts (bug 775485), but they are sent from a no-reply address.

Recipients should be able to reply to welcome emails, either by sending them from a reply-able address, or having a valid reply-to field.

What problems would this solve?
===============================
Messages from no-reply addresses are often filtered as junk, and appear impersonal even when recipients do see them. They are perceived as being robotic, even when "signed" by a person. If the recipient can reply to the email, they can ask questions unique to their situation (or even "how do I get started?", because many people don't actually read the message.

Who would use this?
===================
Users who create accounts on MDN

What would users see?
=====================
They would see a welcome message with a "real" email address in the To: field.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
Users would be able to reply to the email with questions. Even if they don't reply, they would have the perception of being reached by a human, rather than a robot.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
The address could be an alias, such as communitymgr@mozilla.com
The scope of this bug needs to include creating an alias. Janet, can you set up the alias and then this'll be an easy bug to fix!

Submitted a Service-Now request for MDN_community_mgr@mozilla.org. I'll update when that's done.

OK, I now have MDN_community_mgr@mozilla.com (not .org).
