I'm running into a continuous barrage of "suspicious header" messages
like the one below:

...and the upstream admin staff have absolutely *no clue* how to
eliminate the problem (!!). The lists at Scioto.Org are set up as
subscriber-posting only, so the posts being caught should be piped
through without need for intervention. The goal is to turn off the
'suspicious header' subroutine (?) so that our subscribers' mail goes to
the list as designed, but the staff upstream has passed the buck to me,
the end-user...and here I am.  :-)

Any ideas for a solution to this exascerbating problem?
