What exactly works? Local mail originating from root or any mail that
happens to spoof root at example.com in the From: header.

If the latter, just add root at example.com to Privacy options... -> Sender
filters -> accept_these_nonmembers.

If the former, you must have some local mods to support this.

mailman-users at python.org, don't reply to another message.
