Gossamer Mail in Headers = Security Issue
Hello,

Where do I look to get rid of the "Gossamer Mail" notice that appears in the source headers of sent messages.

This appears in the following Format:

X-Gloop: Gossamer Mail
X-Loop: Gossamer Mail

I want to change this for two reasons:

- It tends to obliterate our "independance as a business.

- But most importantly, it offers an open door to hackers who might want to harm my email system.

Basically, I do not trust that Gossamer Mail, in its current state, is a fully secure product. With the headers telling people what kind of software was used to generate the email, I fear that someone might one day try an exploit on my email system and totally destroy what I am doing.

When a hacker does not know the program generating an email, he or she would have a harder time finding out. But if he knows this from the start, 50% of his job is done as it thus becomes easy to work specifically towards diabolic motives.

So, I need urgently to know where I need to look to get read of any mention of Gossamer Mail in the message headers.

Thanks.
