After building a new MailScanner gateway I have run into the following

1) All traffic across the gateway gets tagged with a BitDefender.txt
attachment that reads as follows:

This message was scanned for spam and viruses by BitDefender.
For more information please visit

2) Legitimate e-mail is at times having the tag [spam] added to the
beginning of the subject line.

Has anyone seen this before?  This didn't show up on the MailScanner
archives or in a google search.  Our second gateway doesn't do this so it
must be something I did differently when I set it up.  I'm stumped and
would appreciate any help you could offer.  Thanks!
