Zoho definitely should not be blaming Gmail.  Zoho has instructed
Gmail to reject any mail from that is being relayed through
mailing lists.  Or anywhere else either.

  $ dig txt +short
  "v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=reject; fo=0;;";

Previously Gmail, Yahoo, others did not enforce this instruction.
They now do.

This is one of those things that takes two agents to cooperate in the
action.  The sender must set a strict dmarc policy.  The receiver must
strictly enforce the dmarc policy.  If either does not then the mail
is delivered.  If *both* do then the mail is rejected.  Earlier Yahoo
turned on strict enforcement.  More recently Gmail turned on strict
enforcement.  Here are some references to start:

And I pretty much agree with:

Someone must do the destructive testing. :-)
