The hits are valid? So your users *are* sending spam?

Or are you talking about PBL and dial-up style BL hits? Most likely
valid, but indicates a problem with the header parsing.

Not exactly my area of expertise, but I would guess you don't want to

specific transport, route, or whatever it is called in Sendmail, to not
even pass authenticated submissions to the milter.
