A pernicious spammer has hit our code and is using the shopping cart form code. He does it by inserting extra code into the header of the e-mail. A website (http://www.anders.com/cms/75/Crack.Attempt/Spam.Relay) suggested removing all the line returns from the mail header to prevent this hack.

Does anyone know where I can control the header info to prevent this? Currently I'm blocking it by having the body text scanned for certain text he posts within the body of the e-mail, but I'd like to permanently prevent this hijacking.
