For the List- headers see

Also, the following is in Defaults.py

# RFC 2369 defines List-* headers which are added to every message sent
# through to the mailing list membership.  These are a very useful aid
to end
# users and should always be added.  However, not all MUAs are
compliant and
# if a list's membership has many such users, they may clamor for these
# headers to be suppressed.  By setting this variable to Yes, list
owners will
# be given the option to suppress these headers.  By setting it to No,
# owners will not be given the option to suppress these headers
(although some
# header suppression may still take place, i.e. for announce-only
lists, or
# lists with no archives).

You don't want to delete Sender: or Errors-To: as that would affect
bounce processing.
