Updates after contacting Sense.Lab

Julius
Hey,

here are some updates after contacting Sense.Lab.

>   * figure out with Sense.Lab (Julius)
>       o receiving donations

Here is a suggestion:

 1. Donation is done via by bank transfer with subject "foodcoops.net"
to the Sense.Lab bank account.
 2. The bank account is regularly checked for incoming donations. If
there are new donations with the subject "foodcoops.net", those are
categorized (using GnuCash) as money for our project.
 3. In addition, the donation data are copied to a (version-controlled)
financial overview table where every member of the hosting team has access.

>       o paying bills

If possible, we can pay by direct debit (SEPA-Lastschrift). This is also
the plan for the server costs. If direct debit is not available, we can
forward the bills to Steffen who will make sure that it will be paid.

>       o ask if we can publically post account number

Yes, but we should always mention a specific keyword like
"foodcoops.net" together with the account details so that incoming
donations can be assigned correctly. In fact, the account number is
already publically readable [1].

>   * order server (Julius)

Done. I have already access to our VM. I will write a separate mail for
proceeding here.

>   * check mail server, e.g. outgoing smtp (Julius)

Sense.Lab can help here, too. There are two options:

 * configure the SMTP server to allow sending mails from the server's IP
 * create account on the SMTP server with username and password

Regards,
Julius

I will add this to the new foodcoops hosting page on the website.

Great, I'll include the number, and add the link to there from the website.

I'd prefer the username and password approach, so that any server
changes require less work.

Ok, then we only have to choose an user name and I will setup the account.

This is the data how to setup the SMTP connection:

server: mail.systemausfall.org
port: 587
encryption: STARTTLS
authentication: auth (plain) / password

Best,
Steffen

Perfect.

Hey Steffen,

I would prefer Willem's first suggestion "foodcoops". If that name is
not available, "foodcoopsnet" should be fine, too. Can you create that
account and send me credentials in an encrypted private email? I could
then store the credentials in /root on the server for the setup.

Regards,
Julius
