No, there's gotta be a way to turn that off.  If pound always sent this then people using pound would have yelled at me sooner.  I'd have noticed it too since I test under pound.  You've got a config telling pound to do this.

Ok, I can put this in a test as a raw send.  Thanks I'll let you know when I toss this fix in.
