      My point was that it's reproducible.

      If filtering is on, then yes, the messages contain that header.

      Pardon my aggression.  I have asked this question half a dozen times 
in the last year, and up until now the only responses have been private 
e-mails saying "If you figure it out, tell me how to do it.  My 
understanding Mailman and e-mail in general is very limited compared to 
many here.  What I have been trying to determine is if my understanding of 
how it should work is correct or not.  I'd have been thrilled with a no, 
but no answer at all is very frustrating.

      I can certainly send the stripped e-mails, but I don't see how much 
good that does.  If you can't trust me to accurately report how they get 
through, how can you trust me to accurately report what was sent or how my 
list is configured?  I explained what I was doing so others could replicate 
my set up - I think this would give far better data than my forwarding the 
source of posts.

      I understand this is open source, and I understand that anyone who 
takes time to answer it doing it out of the goodness of their heart.
