DMARC failures show exceptions in the SMTP log
Problem reported by Fred Needham - November 26 at 8:24 AM
Submitted
I installed 15.7.6885 recently and notice some new exception in the SMTP logs.  After an email is rejected for failing DMARC, Smartermail logs several exceptions.  I do use Declude, so the .hdr file is in the proc directory.
The first line in the .hdr file is 'Failed'.  Smartermail works as expected, so this issue does not affect production; however, it does look odd.  An example follows:
