I'm not sure that's correct. I've been testing this so many ways, I'm
not sure what I'm seeing, but I think a reject requires BOTH DKIM and
SPF to be absent or fail. If either passes, no DMARC reject occurs.

There are weird issues though. It seems I can't post from my gmail
address to my yahoo group. I get a non-delivery notice from gmail. I'm
not sure why. The yahoo group exists and my gmail address is a member
with posting privileges.

I'll follow up more after dinner break.
