Be aware that not having these headers will make troubleshooting 
certain kinds of subscriber problems more difficult.  Not an
issue for announce-only lists, and maybe not so much an issue
for moderated lists, but for others, keep a copy.

If you use procmail/formail to strip headers you might make a 


that can be written by the mailman user, and put in the 
listname procmail filter


prior to the stanza that strips headers.  Procmail will
then put a copy each incoming post in a uniquely-named file
in the listname directory.  Your favorite tmpfile tidying
method can be used to eliminate posts too old to be of
interest for troubleshooting purposes.
