No doubled "Subject:" headers. Everything looks just fine, as a matter
of unpleasant fact. I'd be happier if it didn't.

At least I _finally_ convinced the Powers That Be that the MailScanner
box belongs _outside_ the firewall, in the DMZ, where it gets to see
the other end of the SMTP connection directly.

I'm still checking the rest of the parms for oddities, mistakes,
and just plain screwups.
