Mailman can be configured to remove DKIM related headers from incoming
mail before sending. When first implemented, this was done
unconditionally. There were strenuous objections, see the thread at
and removal was made conditional on REMOVE_DKIM_HEADERS which defaults
to No.

The bottom line is that the DKIM standard (RFC 6376) says that invalid
signatures SHOULD NOT be treated differently fro no signature, and
people feel the invalid signature may have forensic value.
