Thanks. I tried it, but it appeared to strip the header from emails that
the "/From: " line didn't match. I'm going to try going the route of a
check_sender_access table entry that uses a 'FILTER transport:' action
to send matched mail through a custom transport. That transport/service
entry in will then apply a single header check to strip out
the header.

I've been fighting with the appropriate settings for the entry and
haven't made much progress, so I will probably drop into the Postfix
mailing list soon and ask for some help there pointing out my obvious

Thanks for your feedback.
