Where are you seeing the above headers? This appears to be some MUA's
rendering of the message, not the raw message headers. In a raw
message, the above headers would not precede the Received: headers.

Do you have access to the global mailbox in the list's archive? It is
the file archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox. If you don't
have direct access to the file, you may have a link to it on the
list's archive table of contents page, and even if not, you may be
able to access it via a URL like

The rest of these headers look like those from a raw message, but since
the first few were moved, I can't be sure what else may have been
