    Why do the headers show the cpanel username?

    <snip>
    Return-path: <cpanel-id@mx.server.com>
    Envelope-to: vext@server.com
    Delivery-date: Tue, 25 May 2004 15:17:22 -0400
    Received: from vqc4me by mx.server.com with local-bsmtp (Exim 4.34)
    id 1BShQP-0001Uz-4j for vext@server.com; Tue, 25 May 2004
    15:17:22 -0400
    Received: from [x.x.x.x] (helo=server.isp.net)
    </snip>

    Fields changed to protect the guilty.

    Any ideas how to remove the cpanle id from the header?

    haven't seen this on other servers.

    Go on, have a guess
    Do you mean the return-path? That's how all SMTP servers work using the username@hostname for the return-path header record. You can override it in scripts in different ways depending on the language used, but you also have to enable an exim feature to do this, see this information from the exim site:
