Mention a mail server in deployment docs

Description

This could be as simple as apt install postfix, which will pretty well work out of the box.

There is more too it that we could mention in "considerations for production deployments". The system would require a reverse DNS entry though and some hosts like AWS automatically blacklist mail from EC2 servers, and require you to use a third-party SMTP service, which you can configure in Postfix.

Personally, I really do like having something like Postfix in the mix rather than hooking MediaGoblin directly to third-party SMTP.
