The changes made by Yahoo, Google, and other companies can't be reverted by us 
and won't be reverted by them.  We have to make our servers deal with it.

Changing the From header to indicate that mail came from a list causes no 
problems apart from apparently messing up thread identification in mutt and 
prevents mail from being inappropriately put in the Gmail spam folder (and 
various other ways of dealing with messages that fail DKIM).

As for thread identification in mutt, if the dmarc_moderation_action option was 
used then the threads would still be broken every time anyone sends a DKIM 
signed message to it.
