Provide e-mail addresses for members and volunteers
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Via G Suite, we could provide e-mail addresses for members and contributors without it costing us anything. I'm thinking we should use something on the form of example@friv.wikipedia.no – "friv" for "frivillig" (volunteer). Since we're using G Suite, they'll work like normal Gmail accounts. The reason we should use this form and not just example@wikipedia.no is to make it clear to recipients of emails that the person they're getting emails from is a volunteer that doesn't necessarily represent Wikipedia.

It should be made very clear to the users that this comes with elevated rights for those that admin the e-mail account, inclusive their ability to wipe the volunteers devices.

Yes, thank you @jeblad, very good point. For those that want one of these I'll make a standardized text explaining these caveats, including what administrators are and aren't capable of doing.
