Actually, I did know that it wasn't quite what you were discussing. I don't
have a mailhost which substitutes an "XOIP" line for a "Received" line, so
I can't really test that with the SC parser.
You did miss where the second "XOIP" stamp came from. SBC Yahoo! DSL
Service (they now actually call themselves, "AT&T Yahoo! HSI", but the
server names probably will not be changed) is a strange hybrid. Prodigy.net
servers are still the MX servers for the nine SBC domains (of which one is
"pacbell.net"). So email to pacbell.net goes through a prodigy.net MX
server, which stamps the "XOIP" for the incoming connection. After that,
the email is handed off to a yahoo.com MDA, which also stamps an "XOIP"
line. While it _is_ redundant, I believe it is an artifact of the AT&T
Yahoo! agreement. I believe that legacy AT&T customers, who are not using
the Yahoo! SMTP/POP3 servers, will get one "XOIP" line from the prodigy.net
MX servers. I believe that Yahoo! Mail customers, without the ISP servers
feeding the yahoo.com MX/MDA system, will get one "XOIP" header line.
Oh, and I just threw it in because you mentioned a "two "XOIP" line" email
