I also had the same problem for a while. I just got it to go away by
installing the latest version of Zmailer. The description of the problem
that Orbs gave me was that an address of the form xxx!www@zzz.com would
get forwarded.  I found this a bit of a supprise since the smtpserver
claimed that it did some "!" processing to throw away these addresses.

But the latest version has fixed these problems so I can relax for a week
or two before some genius finds another email exploit.
