Hi List Admins,
On Aug 1st mailman will be configured to improve message delivery from users whose email provider has a strict DMARC policy (yahoo, aol, etc.). Here’s a quick breakdown of what will change:
Messages whose original From: domain publishes a DMARC policy of p=reject or p=quarantine will...
Have the From: header rewritten (Munged) to the posters name 'via the list' <list_address> and
Merge the poster's address into the Reply-To: header
To reiterate, only if the senders email domain has a strict DMARC policy will the from address be rewritten. While rewriting the from header may not be ideal this is a necessary setting to ensure reliability of the mailing list system. Without rewriting these messages may be lost silently, or with cryptic error DSN messages returned to the poster. List admins may optionally choose a different moderation action on a per-list basis.
Additional detail about mailman configuration and DMARC moderation settings be found at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailman#DMARC_Compatibility <https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailman#DMARC_Compatibility>

There is a mailman option for this problem, too.
You can find a value for new_member_options to avoid duplicates if possible.
The Readme says:
Each member has a set of subscription options which they can use to control
how they receive messages and otherwise interact with the list. While the
members can change these settings by logging into their personal options page,
you might want to set the default for a number of the member options. You can
do that with this variable, but see also the other categories for other member
defaults you can set.
This variable presents a set of checkboxes which control the defaults for
some of the member options. Conceal the member's address specifies whether or
not the address is displayed in the list roster. Acknowledge the member's
posting controls whether or not Mailman sends an acknowledgement to a member
when they post a message to the list. Do not send a copy of a member's own post
specifies whether a member posting to the list will get a copy of their own
posting. Filter out duplicate messages to list members (if possible) specifies
whether members who are explicitly listed as a recipient of a message (e.g. via
the Cc: header) will also get a copy from Mailman.
Of course, members can always override these defaults by making changes on
their membership options page.
I tried it on my site and it works fine.
In addition you have the possibility to set "duplicates off/on" for each member
in the admin and the user web interface for mailman.
can someone please block mails coming from qq.com ?
