Hold for "suspicious header" occurs because a header matched one of the
regexps in bounce_matching_headers - see "legacy spam filters" in
Privacy options...->Spam filters.

The following comment in Hold.py explains why the actual header is not

            # TBD: Darn - can't include the matching line for the admin
            # message because the info would also go to the sender
