Thanks, I'll stop looking for one!

I don't think that's a good alternative then.

That's fine, I just want to know what the options are without having to experiment with all sorts of clients.

If we set from_is_list to No, how does the list behave when yahoo.com emails arrive? I'm under the impression it will send them to the moderation queue, and will offer extra options like munging. Is that correct, or am I confused? Do we have to change any other settings to make that happen?

Looking now at the description of dmarc_moderation_action, I think I'm confused.
