 Just had a look at one of them, the body looks unchanged, the headers however are {Spam?}

 Its the outbound queue. I've not caught any in quarantine or input yet. I do know that another plain exim server we have passes these ok.
 Exim is configured with 2 seperate queues in and out.

 Thanks for this :) - I would have thought exim would check too mind you!
