DMARC - missing 'mailto:' from DNS Record

The DMARC Record generated when enabling DMARC in 'Virtualmin - Server Configuration - DNS Options' is missing 'mailto:'

Generated record is something like "v=DMARC1; pct=100; ruf=postmaster@example.com; rua=postmaster@example.com; p=reject"

When it should be "v=DMARC1; pct=100; ruf=mailto:postmaster@example.com; rua=mailto:postmaster@example.com; p=reject"

This was not the case not too long ago.

It is possible to manually fix this in 'Virtualmin - Server Configuration - DNS Records' but it breaks once DNS Option are saved again

Same here. In server template: "Reporting URI for forensic reports: mailto:postmaster@domain" and "Reporting URI for aggregate reports: mailto:postmaster@domain" is selected but the generated DNS record is missing "mailto:" in both options.

Debian 9, Webmin 1.881, Virtualmin 6.03 gpl

I usually create my own DMARC and SPF zone records using https://mxtoolbox.com

You also cant go wrong with these...
https://www.spfwizard.net/
https://dmarc.org/resources/deployment-tools/

By far the most reliable way to do it!

That's not the issue here. I know how to create SPF and DMARC and do it manually. The issue is that virtualmin is not creating them correctly when you add a new virtual server. This needs to be fixed ASAP. The other issue is that if you change something and the DNS get's re-created it will screw it up again. Not acceptable.

If i have to do it manually then why would i need Virtualmin in the first place.
