Sure, but it is a trade-off.  DMARC imposes a penalty on adding a
footer, the DKIM signature breaks, and p=reject kicks in, unless
we start mangling the From lines, which is IMHO worse, but opinions
vary...  On the postfix-users list, majordomo (not mailman) is configured
to detect various attempts at (un)sub and blocks the post, responding to
the user instead with helpful directions.  False positives happen rarely,
but as the list is email related, not never, and one has to rephrase some
posts to get around the filter.
