I don't see any problem in the message here, and any message that is 
even slightly suspect gets rejected by our gateway- I'll fix that sometime.

I note that the headers you quote include a few X- headers that I don't 
see here:

I can't remember whether our gateway is explicitly rejecting those but 
in any event I think that repeated header is suspect. Is your ISP doing 
extra scanning, and messing things up?
