I agree strongly with you: the IETF needs to do something in some direction.


That something could be to properly reject email with a DMARC policy that
does not permit forwarding.  That would piss off an awful lot of IETF
participants, but it would be simple, since it requires no protocol
changes, just social changes.

It seems that email is operating exactly as DMARC intends :-)

But, that would also render the From: field meaningless.
