That won't be because you're adding a "Precedence: bulk" header. 
That'll be because you were auto-replying to too much spam.

We tend to be fairly aggressive on our spam checking when it's going 
into RT, with procmail dumping the mail into a separate mail folder if 
it even suspects that the mail is spam.

We also send our RT mail out through our main mail relays which means 
that if we do auto-reply to spam then the spam/ham ratio is much lower, 
since our staff and students are sending legitimate mail out to yahoo as
