I am heavily involved in e-mail servers and the war on spam. I know of no
one that does any kind of filtering, even in a weighting system, on that
header. The probability of false-positive with that is way up there. If
someone is actually filtering and rejecting on that, they do not understand
e-mail and the war on spam.

However, just to be fair, I have cross posted this information on another
list that deals with junkmail and will post comments I receive from there.

Not that I am aware of, but if so, I am sure someone will post how.
