But Sendmail does not check those internal headers.  Its checking
is done in "chompheader", which only looks at top-level message
headers.

So if you specifically want to duplicate Sendmail's behaviour, it is
enough to look in ./HEADERS.  If you want to check internal headers,
then you need the code you posted.

David.
