Its quite easy to do.  You edit one file - please backup the file before
you edit it!:

  headers = {
      'List-Id'         : listid,
      'List-Help'       : '<mailto:%s?subject=help>' % requestaddr,
      'List-Unsubscribe': subfieldfmt % (listinfo, requestaddr, 'un'),
      'List-Subscribe'  : subfieldfmt % (listinfo, requestaddr, ''),
      'List-Post'       : '<mailto:%s>' % mlist.GetListEmail(),

Feel free to delete any of the lines inside the "headers" clause, but I
would recommend that you leave 'List-Id'.

BTW: I strongly feel that this should be in the FAQ, even though I fully
agree that the problem is with the Mail client (the MUA) and not with
