Hello Ralf,

Since we are discussing with email, can I ask why you choose this email account?

b/c yahoo/rocketmail has the strictest policy on DMARC, thus it breaks 
any mailing list forwarding. As you see,  for every email sent from you 
the sender is replaced with the list address itself.

What's the DKIM for  1799    IN      TXT     "v=DMARC1; p=reject; 
pct=100; rua=mailto:dmarc_y_rua at;"

p=reject is a bad setting in my opinion since it breaks any forwarding 
(including list).

I asked this question for no special meanings but just curious.
