Evidence that a message is from a mailing-list, or that the message has
been signed, is not apparent without examining headers that few ever
see. Most MUAs display the From, To, CC, and Subject. Only some
attempt to show the Sender header in some fashion. None of these
headers are ensured to represent the actual originator of the message.
If there is to be some added annotations, what should they be?
When the DKIM header verifies, assures a specific email-address, and
this assured email-address is recognized based upon some retained
email-address via a list or address-book, mark the message accordingly.
Reputation can be considered an orthogonal issue to that of a recognized
