What does “Not aligned, pass” mean?

What does “Not aligned, pass” mean?

"Not aligned, pass" means the SPF/DKIM authentication passed, but the mailfrom/d= domains do not match the “from” domain. In the attached example, although the SPF authentication check passes (i.e the IP address is listed on the mailfrom domain's SPF record), the mismatch between the mailfrom domain ( and the "from" domain produces a "Not aligned, pass" result.
