Let me know if the experiment works. Otherwise, I'll change my subscription.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We have been experiencing problems when list subscribers with Yahoo
addresses send mail through the HPR mailing list.
Due to Yahoo's policy of using DMARC
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMARC) in a particular way, messages sent
by Yahoo users through the Mailman software that runs the HPR list are
often rejected by the recipients. Most of these are Yahoo accounts, but
These rejections can result in the recipients being removed from the HPR
list after a number of such rejections. It's a known issue with DMARC
and mailing lists.
Cutting a long story short, there's a Mailman setting that can
apparently help prevent this. I would like to try setting it. I'm going
to try the strategy of turning it on, then watching list to be sure it's
not doing anything it shouldn't. If it looks like a bad idea I'll turn
it off again!
