The rule  is


DKIM_VALID_AU is too strict for DMARC as it requires strict alignment.
OTOH SPF_PASS requires no alignment at all which should eliminate most
FPs on incoming mail - including most forwarded mail. DKIM should only
rarely make a difference on ham. 

Do you have something preventing SPF from working correctly?

It would be useful to include  ALL_TRUSTED in these rules to handle
local and outgoing mail better.

I would also include __RP_MATCHES_RCVD.
