DKIM is a standard by which the mail server applies a cryptographic signature
to some elements of an email, to ensure it is not tampered with. 

Your mail (the one I'm reply to) contained the following signature:


That means that your mail server (protonmail.ch) applied a digital
ignature on the following email headers:

  - Date
  - To
  - From
  - Subject
  - Message-Id
  - In-Reply-To
  - References

The mail servers involved in getting the mail to me checked your
server signature and added an header with the outcome of the

    hst.kbt.io; dkim=pass (2048-bit key; secure)


So both "spoo.mail.gandi.net" and "hst.kbt.io" where happy with your
signature. If Mailman injected a prefix in the "Subject" header
(which is among the ones signed by protonmail.ch) the servers of
recipients would detect the mail was modified and thus will consider
it suspicious.
