From Kalyan Sriram to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Thanks so much, everyone, for the help so far. Hopefully I can get to
the bottom of this with everyone's spam reports. I seem to have
identified two problems:
1) When sending email through lists.sr.ht, my mail fails DKIM. This is
not because srht's own DKIM fails (it works) but my own DKIM fails.
However, when I am sending directly, that very same DKIM configuration
on my server passes. I have no clue yet what is causing this but will
investigate.

2) Even on "direct" emails to GMail domains, which claim that I am
passing DMARC, DKIM, and SPF, I still get put in spam.

This is a mailing list test 9 months ago

How are DKIM/DMARC/SPF looking when going through a mailing list?

Weird. Fastmail appears to use SpamAssassin, which is tested by
mail-tester.com and other sites and I haven't had any issues from it
before.
