I don't speak from experience in regards to my comment made on DMARC 
mitigation. It was based on observing comments that have been made.

Bounce processing will still not be available for new users of Mailman 
which is my big concern. I assume new lists will have to have those 
settings adjusted via the Mailman shell?

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your business. We appreciate our clients.
