Email headers play a large role in tracking down who sent and received the so-called spam. But not every ISP supplies a standard ARF report, including VERP addresses and custom headers denoting account, recipient, etc. They don’t have to include the recipient in the returned email, and they can and will munge your headers. Make sure your FBL process has the capability to look at multiple headers and, if it fails to process them, alerts someone to handle the FBL report manually.
