FW: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender

I've been getting these messages fairly regularly lately. We're running SA
3.1.8 and Exim 4.6.6 on FreeBSD 6.1. I've changed the exim->SA config to go
through a pipe rather than the traditional way, set it to only scan messages
<100K, turned off Bayes AutoLearn because it was creating token files in the
multiple hundred megabyte range and it still is popping up. I've held off on
upgrading to SA 3.2.1 because of the performance issues I've read about, I'm
concerned that the problem will get worse if I upgrade. 

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it? 

Here is the message:
