There are a few choices for working around this issue.  My personal
preference, which I hope is acceptable to the list community, is
to avoid modifying the message subject and body.  That is, the onus
of adding a "[Haskell-cafe] " subject prefix falls on message
authors (and those who respond if the tag is not yet present).
And the list [message footer is not added.

    Haskell-Cafe mailing list
    To (un)subscribe, modify options or view archives go to:
    Only members subscribed via the mailman list are allowed to post.

The "List-" headers contain all the requisite (un)sub information.

If leaving the message unmolested is deemed no acceptable, then
the "mailman" list manager provides a number of alternative
DMARC work-arounds that mangle the message "From" field in
various ways.  Consult the mailman docs.
