Does anyone have any thoughts on my question?
Am I the only one receiving these emails?!

Subject: [exchangelist] List server mail ALWAYS lands in BADMAIL

My Configuration: 

I use an IIS5 SMTP server to forward email to my Exchange 5.5 server. 
There is no Spam filtration on the IIS5 box (yet) 

The problem: 

I have several executives in my company that receive mews flashes from
various list servers. 

The L-SOFT list server in particular. 

I have spoken with them and they theorize that it is because they send a
"return-path: <>" in the message header. 

Here is the header of the list server email I receive: 

Received: from ([]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.5329);

Here are the contents of the .BDR file associated with it: 
Unable to deliver this message because the follow error was encountered:
"This message is a delivery status notification that cannot be delivered.".

The specific error code was 0xC00402C7. 

The message sender was <>. 

The message was intended for the following recipients. 


Anyone here ever see this? 

And what is a .BDP file?
