	That only works for the headers on input.  This is a case of 
headers being generated on output, and being placed there by the next 
system down the line (which they don't control).  They need to fix 
their system so that it uses a single anonymized envelope sender 
address, and then the problem will fix itself.

	You can do these sorts of things in either sendmail or postfix, 
and perhaps in other MTAs as well.  However, "milter" is a 
terminology specific to sendmail.  It has not been ported to any 
other MTA I know of, although it was contributed by a source outside 
of the Sendmail Consortium.
