FTR, DMARC handling has now been updated.
The filter no longer removes DKIM headers (it renames them if necessary).

Also the DKIM and From headers are handled independently.
This should avoid problems previously caused if there were two DKIM
Sigs or the Sig appeared after the From header.

If you see any problems going forward, please raise a JIRA with the details.
Thanks!
