Wait, I see the problem, your MTA is adding your domain to all unqualified
recipients. This is something you need fix, since it is a slightly
exploitable flaw (makes it easy for a scammer to look legit).
I suppose you're using postfix, right? In PF, IIRC, there are a few şettings
affecting this, so try vary those!

The reformatting is done in MilScanner? Truly? Not your MTA?
And, apart from the looks, what detrimental effects does it have?
Anyway, if they aren't RFC compliant, why should you fix it for them? Inform
them if you like, then just ... Forget them;-)
