    If the number of "Received:" headers in the message is smaller than
    the "hop count" it really isn't the soret of mail loop that Exchange
    (or any other MTA) can easily control.
     
    You may have two mailboxes with auto-responder rules that send each
    other a *new* message for every message they receive. Each *new*
    message has only a small number of "Received:" headers.
