Three objections to your DKIM signature:

(1)

Your canonicalization is "relaxed/simple", i.e. the mail is signed with
"simple" bodycanon:

  DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; c=relaxed/simple; d=secnap.net; h=

That's why you have

  Authentication-Results: [...] dkim=neutral (body hash did not verify)
    header...@secnap.net

- -- the list software appends some lines at the end of mail. You should
use 

  Canonicalization relaxed/relaxed

in dkim-filter.conf or

  milterdkim_flags="-c relaxed/relaxed"

in rc.conf if you use Sendmail. (See headers of my mail.)


(2)

You have "Received" header field included in the signature, while
RFC4871 states that it SHOULD NOT be the case:

  http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4871#section-5.5


(3)

You do not specify body length (l= in DKIM header). According to

  http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4871#section-3.4.5

it could be a good idea to use it, especially when mailing lists are in
question.


In total, mailing list owners don't have an obligation to strip DKIM
signatures. Instead, other methods can be used on both sides, see
section 4.1.
