Contact email address
We need an email address to be give to people. It would be better to have this as a mailing list so its easy to share this with multiple people. It would have been nice if loomio had this option, but loomio does not support it.
I suggest we create a private group at forum.disroot.org and set our mx records to disroot. I'm going to request email@example.com let me know who wants to be in the list.
Disroot is community run and we have good relations with them. There are other community run services like autistici.org or riseup.net, but they may not be willing to give @pirates.org.in domain. Another option might be to run our own discourse instance. But we'll need some volunteers to maintain it.

Run a loomio instance on our server/domain Closed Sun 1 May 2016
1. This will reduce burden of loomio.org (we have the expertise to run it ourselves)
2. Give us direct control over our data
3. We can customize it as we need (membership approval and email support)
4. Better branding on our own domain
1. Need more volunteers to maintain (we can find them as we grow)
2. Need more resources (we can crowd fund it)

Use libreinfra.org for email on our domain pirates.org.in Closed Tue 1 Nov 2016
Our current email address indianpirates at mail.com does not look good (people may not take us seriously). If we use an email address on our own domain, that makes it much better.
Some of us (me, @balasankarchelamat , @tvm , Fayad and some more friends) run an email service on a cost sharing basis. We can point pirates.org.in domain to libreinfra.org mail server. We will need it even if we run our own loomio instance as well. Cost comes around 365 rupees per year, we can ask for sponsorship like we do for our domain.

Using an e-mail domain of our own may look good, but using any of the privacy aware email-id providers like riseup, autistici or disroot should be fine as well. We should definitely switch from mail.com to a privacy respecting e-mail id provider.
