+ at section Why is the mailing list munging my address?
+This is due to subscribers that use a mail service with a DMARC reject policy
+which adds difficulties to mailing list operators.
+The mailing list must re-write (munge) the @emph{From:} header for such users;
+otherwise their mail service will reject and bounce the message resulting in
+automatic unsubscribing from the mailing list.
+When sending a message these users will see @emph{via <mailing list name>}
+added to their name and the @emph{From:} address munged to the address of
+the particular mailing list.
+If you want to avoid this then please use a different mail service.
