#7737 Incorrect settings in Fedora mailing lists
Closed: Will Not/Can Not fix 6 months ago by kevin. Opened 6 months ago by xvitaly.

Currently Fedora mailing lists use "From" fields from original messages and if sender's domain use DMARC=reject policy, mailing lists subscribers cannot receive any messages from such users.

For example my domain easycoding.org use DMARC=reject policy (with SPF and DKIM checks) and subscribers of Fedora mailing lists cannot receive my messages because their MX servers follow DMARC procedure and drop them.

Someone need to fix this because more and more mailing servers starts enforcing DMARC=reject.


This is a per list setting. The users list for example does enable dmarc mitigations. Others do not.

Please contact list owners for the lists you are interested in and ask them politely to change the setting, or adjust the setting on your end to not be reject.

The only provider I know that missets this off hand is yahoo, and they have so many other problems it's not worth mitigating this one (IMHO).

I experience problems with devel@lists.fedoraproject.org.

@kevin Common Gmail configuration also enforce DMARC, and domain owners are reluctant to change that. With Gmail, rejection is unpredictable, though, and things may or may not end up in the spam folder or can get dropped altogether without trace.
