Issue with your exim port's Makefile

  Well I see RFC 2821 :

The "Received:" field contains a
   (possibly empty) list of name/value pairs followed by a semicolon and
   a date-time specification.  The first item of the name/value pair is
   defined by item-name, and the second item is either an addr-spec, an
   atom, a domain, or a msg-id.  Further restrictions may be applied to
   the syntax of the trace fields by standards that provide for their
   use, such as [RFC2821].

  Which is specifying exactly what the semicolon is for!  It must follow
the date, that is why Outlook Express and Outlook are having this issue!
