My intent was to check the server that is first used to send the mail, 
and for that I rely on a (in this case) mail server talking 
to a trusted server of the receiver. If people are receiving mail from 
one of their own servers that SpamAssassin does not know is trusted, 
then there is no way to tell if a Received header is forged.
