Hi Mark,

I've been thrown into this so I am unfamiliar with these servers (not my
own that I usually deal with). Anyway, as I unravel things I'm working
with, I see that I am really running version 2.1.9. As I understand it,
the DMARC mitigation was not added until 2.1.18. So I think using
import21 should work, right?
