emails as spams.

- The email is not encrypted (it has a red padlock with a cross in gmail,
which alarmingly gives an insecure/spammy feeling even if it’s not spam.
Here are a few other findings that I got after a quick scan:
- RBL: Sender listed at https://www.dnswl.org/, no trust [18.104.22.168
listed in list.dnswl.org]
- Multiple indicators imply a widely-seen list manager

Like I said, I’m already forcefully filtering them into my inbox form the
spam folder; telling gmail never to mark them as spam.
I also do understand that our mailer maintainers (I don’t know how many of
you guys are out there, but you deserve full respect for keeping this thing
