You also need to be aware that in general *removing* received headers is
a bad idea - they tend to be used as the last ditch failsafe against
mail loops.   You could probably edit them into absolute bare minimum
form with anonymised data - however you need to save them somewhere
because at some point there will be a mail problem where you need those
original received headers to diagnose.
