I enabled this due DMARC as Timo correctly pointed out. This was due to the seemingly increasing number of rejected/bounced messages from certain domains resulting in the recipient being automatically unsubscribed from the list. I changed this relatively recently (last month?). I was unaware of the patchwork issue.

This was implemented with the "dmarc_moderation_action" option within Mailman. It is currently set to "Munge from" and was previously set to "Accept". More info:


There is no perfect solution to the DMARC situation as far as I know.
