Can you judge if DMARC is enabled "blindly"? No, I thought not. Also,
the issue was not on the receiving end, but the reject policy for the
originating domain.

Personally, I choose to treat "reject" as if it was "quarantine",
i.e. affected mail is rerouted to a specific folder.

Only speak for yourself please.
