Yes. Their outgoing mail goes through a third-party system which ends up
generating uucpsys!user@realsys.domain. The latter MXes to us.

I couldn't find a way to do it otherwise, so I hacked the router to
accept a "whosoninfo" envelope-header. This also has the positive effect
that the "real" whoson gets passed into the router log, which we
recently used to prove to the client that the spam they sent really
came from their site while they were authorized. (They used our whoson
block as an excuse not to any spam filtering for themselves.)
