> Old address: someuser@YAHOO.COM
> New address: 0000003942b2b314-dmarc-request@LISTSERV.EXAMPLE.COM
In reality, you probably don't want to.
LISTSERV rewrites the ‘From:’ address of (in this case) yahoo.com addresses because yahoo.com has a DMARC ‘p=reject’ policy, meaning that any messages received from a non-Yahoo mail server that have a Yahoo address in the ‘From:’ header will be rejected by many sites (including virtually all of the big mail providers). Additional details regarding this rewriting can be found here:
Failing to rewrite the ‘From:’ address would cause the message to be rejected by mail servers with DMARC "p=reject", and increases the probability that your LISTSERV installation and mail servers will be seen as a source of spam, damaging their reputation, and increasing the change that other mail from your server will also be flagged as spam.
