Since adding a header to each email address within a connection requires
building SMTP parser - I could say it's very difficult. Probably a wealthy
sponsor could make me change my mind, but otherwise such change obviously
breaks the KISS principle that stunnel is based on.

What about installing an SMTP router in front with RBL support, than your
anti-spam proxy, than another instance of SMTP server for local delivery?
For sure it's easier than adding another feature to stunnel.
I use a similar configuration for antivirus scanner based on Postfix.

I didn't know that. Thank you.
