Subjects (atleast) are being rewritten, a recipient can't verify the
original (signed) hash to match the received message (replay
protection).  Only thing that is needed is a valid DKIM signature after
the subject (and maybe others) has "[asterisk-users]" prepended.

It appears exim 4.76 is being used, that version is recent enough to add
DKIM on sending via smtp.

begin transports

        driver                  = smtp
        dkim_domain             = lists.digium.com
        dkim_selector           = auniqueid
        dkim_private_key        = /etc/exim4/dkim/list.digium.com-private.pem
        dkim_canon              = relaxed

More info for example from:
The hints to do this for only 1 domain if the smtpd is used for others
are all there.

The reports are there to tell you something isn't right (like on this
mailing list). Disabling them is only hiding the problem, people might
be replying with the correct answer to a problem, but the OP might never
gets that message.
