[SOLVED] User address in mail header

We found a weird issue on several PMGs filtering mails exposing other users addresses in the mail header.
This is GDPR wise an absolute fail and should be fixed asap.
Apparently the spam header lists "Sender email is commonly abused enduser mail provider (......... list of other users mailaddresses)".

Green = User address - From and Reply-to
Red = Other users mail addresses forwarding mails to or receiving mails from PMGs.


We've had several customers reporting this issues. No legal charges are yet claimed but this is a pressing issue.

How can we solve this globaly?

Thanks in advance!

If you've upgraded to PMG 6.0 that should be the case! - you can check - the version of proxmox-spamassassin needs to be 3.4.2-12
(`dpkg -l |grep proxmox-spamassassin`)
