I don't think it is a problem that you can solve by directing people
on what is to be done. It will work with few people, but is always
error prone. People read mailing list with various email clients,
correcting the email or removing it by directing people who reply is
simple not feasible. As you see, mailing list is pretty spam free, so
either moderators do the work, or spam filters do the work. You can do
the same with your domain, Protonmail is hosting it for you, and maybe
they have spam filter or similar, there is server side check against
spammer IP database and various other techniques. Spam that
fraudulently originates from your domain would be, in my opinion,
detected by Protonmail and placed in Spam folder due to ~all in the
SPF record.
