Deploying DMARC (and DKIM)

I found that Google/Gmail was suddenly filing email from my domains into the spam folder of the recipients. At that point I had implemented SPF a few years back. It's difficult to access whether SPF pass increases the chances for successful delivery, but SPF fails definitely increase the odds of rejections, which is a good thing, because it makes my domains unattractive for spoofing. This in turn has reduced the number of non-delivery messages (back-scatter) for spam that claimed to originate from one of my domains to just about none.

Generally, in Drupal 4.7, modules cannot deny access to certain nodes, but they must hide all nodes and then grant access selectively. If you already have content, installing such a module will make all of your content vanish!

I'm trying to find my way here, reporting as I go...
