Milter-null has a bug that prevent good bounces from being recognized.  The
current version identifies all bounces as not originating on the server.

I modified the code so that it ignores the date when it calculating the
X-Null-Tag.  The X-Null-Tag still is unique since it is based on the
recipient email address, the message-ID and the secret word.  

The modified version works correctly.  Add this line after blank lines 395
and 492:

		data->sent = 0;

So that diff shows this result:

diff milter-null.c.org milter-null.c.mod
>               data->sent = 0;
>               data->sent = 0;
