Mentors should be able to easily email their mentees. We want to provide a special email address 

mymentees@reps.mozilla.org

and a django management app that will:

 - Read through pop / imap the emails in mymentees inbox
 - Match the sender of the email with a mentor in Reps DB
 - Forward the email to mentees of the mentor, CCing the mentor
 - Remove origin email from mymentees inbox, after succesfull forward

We will go ahead with a mentees@mozillareps.org email address since we cannot get a @reps.mozilla.org address right now.
MX records might need to change in DNS. Let me know if there are any changes I should make

After discussing with various IT stakeholders, it seems unlikely that we can employ Mozilla infrastructure for the core address/list-management/delivery/sending functions implied by this bug. We should explore alternative implementations.

Mozilla currently uses ExactTarget for newsletter management. ExactTarget has an API: http://help.exacttarget.com/en/technical_library/

Since ExactTarget has already been through the reviews necessary to use a 3rd-party service provider, let's explore their API and look for ways to make it work for this use case.

I believe this is old enough now and the conclusion was that we're not going to build this using Mozilla Infra, thus I'm marking this one WONTFIX.

If this is still something the program / platform needs a new bug should be filed with updated requirements and scope and proceed with evaluation of other solutions like ExtractTarget.
