I can't set the Return-Path header due to safe mode
I can't change safe mode
The only solution I've found is not setting the Return-Path header, but some anti-spam filters recognize my mails as spam.

I suspect that the problem may be something else. Are you sure that the mails are only recognized as spam when you do not set the Return-path address?

The Return-Path address is virtual. I mean, the mail protocols ignore that address. The mail message classes just look into it to set the address where undelivered messages are returned.

Maybe when you do not set the return-path address, the messages bounce to a mail address that you do not have access, rather than being recognized as spam by the recipient mail system.
