 Verify return paths is on, and I have all my "routing to error"
 entries first in the router. What circumstances would cause this to
 fail? I've yet to have this email address blocked.

 From the log:
 01:51:23 2 SMTP-357([]) {S.0000602203} received, 1282 bytes
 01:51:23 2 SYSTEM [S.0000602203]
 <> 0+1

This is the message ID, not return path.

And this is not the message return path either.

Thanks... now, not to appear too dense, but I need some help understanding this..  where do you find the "return path"? From the offending message headers:

Received: from [] (HELO by (Stalker SMTP Server 1.8b8) with ESMTP id S.0000602203 for <>; Tue, 10 Dec 2002 01:51:23 -0500

Is it the "Return-Path" as specified in the headers above? In that case, it seems like <>=error should work. Or is it something else, do I need to turn on more logging in SIMS to discover it?  (And I can assume that the "From" entry in the headers is not the same as the "Mail From" address that is mentioned in the docs, which seems to be, from the docs, the same as the "Return-Path" address ?)

One thing I meant to mention in my first email, is that I'm using version 1.8b8
