It is true for any server that is applying DMARC policies.
And having to deal with his messages is also very annoying to me.

Ast should use a proper invalid email address (E.g. anything ending in
.invalid, but there are also other reserved domains for such
purposes.) if he does not want to reveal his real address, instead of
making up a possibly valid address.
