Mangled From address in mailing list distributed message turned it into spam

Bret Busby-2
I am assuming that the mangled From address of the message below, is
why gmail designated the message as spam.

Hi,

if you don't own an Android, iOS or iPadOS device, just open a web
browser and run an Ubuntu flavour online (perhaps using an adblocker):
https://www.onworks.net/os-distributions/ubuntu-based

Android:
https://www.onworks.net/applications/android-apps/ubuworks-ubuntu-from-android

I tested it for iPadOS.
https://apps.apple.com/app/ubuntuow-connection-vnc/id1433327149#?platform=ipad
There's no way to share folders and files, no audio bridge etc, I at
least couldn't start jackd when running an Ubuntu Studio session, but
the connection with the host works without issues. Sure, no root access,
but fortunately the advertisings are hidden under the virtual keyboard
and other than for XGimp from the same seller, I didn't experienced ads
that lock the screen for a while, when starting the app. I could click
away the ads immediately. The performance is very good, at least with my
iPad and the current Internet connection.

Screenshot of a session:

As you can see, it's the oldest still supported LTS, but it's up to
date.

The supported flavours:

Ralf

Several mails contain the "via ubuntu-users" sender. Perhaps the
amount of links are the culprit.

probably rather because of the content (hint: the links to ad plastered
websites) :)

If I am wrong, then I apologise.

This is a mitigation applied for messages from domains that publish a
DMARC policy, since otherwise mailing list delivery breaks.  For
technical details, see:
