I finally tracked this down. It is being done by the latest release of
SquirrelMail, a webmail server. This is an excellent package but I don't
agree with this change. They didn't make it a feature...it's hard coded
into their new release and I don't like it. I also didn't see it listed in
I thought maybe F-Prot was doing it!
