I would also be interested if anyone has any answers or suggestions to this
as we have seen the same issue on our mailman servers. Enabling the DMARC
option on the general options page seems to fix it however but I am not sure
in why this has suddenly become a problem with just using the privacy
options -- sender filters settings.
