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's hard coded
into their new release and I don't like it.  I also didn't see it listed in
their changelog?

I thought maybe F-Prot was doing it!
