There's no such thing as an SMTP header.  There is an SMTP conversation
and an RFC 2822 header.

You need to learn how Internet email works.  Hint: there's more to it
than the RFC 2822 header, which is what you see in your MUA.  There have
been several books published on this in the last year or so; look for
titles like "Programming Internet Email" for starters.  Or you could go
read RFCs 2821 and 2822, but RFCs are not tutorials.

You're on the right track: SMTP is most certainly involved.
