I understand how letting spammers send mail through our systems could
get us added to lists, but Michael stated "then, check the blacklists to
see how to get removed." as if we are already on a list. We are not.

Back to the main issue.

Here is an example pastbin. http://pastebin.com/mJqRPzkv

I found this message in the logs and it comes from yahoo. I don't think
I will focus on our forms because general mail also has its received
headers stripped. So the question is is what is doing this? I need help
to determine how to isolate this problem down. If it is postfix, I will
go to there lists etc... I have not implemented any rules that strip
received headers nor do I want to.

Thanks,
