Shouldn't that be "env_to" instead of "to"?

What do the dccm log files for those messages have to say?  

`grep dccm /var/log/maillog` (or or wherever the dccm log messages go)
should find complaints about an unrecognized checksum type.

What does `dccproc -w whiteclnt` say?  It should whine in the system log
something like:
 ... dccproc[26114]: unrecognized checksum type "to" in line 92 of whiteclnt
