Yahoo emaill addresses not being sent when assigned "From"

We have a client with a reservation form using universal email that was not receiving all of their emails. It seems to have started last year spring. We tried tons of different things but couldn't figure out what the problem was.

I switched to a different form handler but the same thing was happening. The database capture was a little more thorough and we were able to see that any email with @yahoo.com. We set the From field to the email of the person filling out the form in both cases so the customer could reply to them. More info here about yahoo.com changing its dmarc ploicy. https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail/SLN24016.html and here http://blog.mailchimp.com/aol-changes-dmarc-policy/

The fix was to set the From email as an address from the website and the Reply to Address as the person filling out the form so the customer could still reply to the email. I like universal email better but I can't set a reply to email address so I can't use it currently for this site.

Is there away to set the reply to hard coding or otherwise. Have you come across this problem before and do you have a fix? I didn't see anything current within the last year since the change about it in the forums.
