will use ADSP to matter, is to discard incoming messages with ADSP
settings that can cause trouble. If they say their mail is
take them at their word and discard it.
I agree that if a signing domain publishes discardable then the MLM
should discard it. Let's apply a little logic here. The types of
mailstreams that have been identified as being suitable candidates for
ADSP discardable have always been ones that would not be appropriate
(bank notifications, etc) for passing through MLMs in the first place.
While an ecard might be sent to all the members of a list, this is
enough of a corner case that if the domain publishes discardable then
that message should be discarded even though it would otherwise be
If a domain publishing ADSP discardable has not gotten control of their
mailstreams then all I can say is "Darwin was right".
Clearly, mailing lists that do things to the From: SHOULD (even
sign, and any RFC documenting my proposal would include that.
Hmmn. Since you apparently believe this is a valuable and useful
proposal, could you remind us why, exactly, you're not writing it?
Writing I-Ds isn't hard. Lots of us do it all the time.

whether it makes sense.
