Okay, I'm not disagreeing with either of you on SPF/DMARC/etc.’s inner
workings, as I have to wrangle those beasts myself for my clients' DNS to
work correctly. Literal headache every time.

I am going to say, that the Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) Users mailing
list seems to send from/to ProtonMail without the reply to issue the Devuan
Users list has. The list admin, and owner of the project, is Timothy
Pearson, and his publicly published email is:

"Timothy Pearson" <kb9vqf@???>

He's somewhat hard to get a hold of, but I can certainly provide copies of my
message headers to the TDE users list privately to the admin(s) of this list.
The headers are fairly different, not that I know what specifically ‘fixes’
this issue, but I’ll guess it would hopefully give a clue as to what/where
the fix lies.

I was also a member of the LEAF user list for near 20 years, I don’t remember
them ever having the issue either. I can dig up some old headers (‘17) off
that list as well if an admin here thinks it would help.

Admittedly, just being able to always click reply and it ‘just works’ is a
triviality on any issue scale, but if there’s anything I can do to help get
there, I’m in, as it’s momentous on my annoyance scale.

Best All,
