Thanks for the info. I found it, but as you say, it should be the MTA's 
responsibility not mine.

This is probably not my ISP since they don't seem to set it either. The mails 
that go to xpert are ID'd by xfree86.org. I'm guessing that somewhere in hte 
Debian mail servers this is being set, so the problem is probably theirs.

I'll get onto them. I know that several of the admin's for them hang out on a 
mailing list I'm part of, so that should help.
