Hmm. I've had a careful look at the mail outgoing from the ILUG list
software, and there's nothing in there which isn't allowed by the RFC822
and associated specs. In fact, the headers are pretty minimal compared
to the baroque reams which some mail clients put in...
Could you tell me precisely *which* headers your MTA has trouble with,
and I'll see whether anything can be done about it?
