Neither standard Mailman nor Postfix will add or set this header. This
header is normally added to a message via her MUA by a user who
doesn't want the message archived. Normal messages contain no
X-No-Archive: header at all.

I don't know about Mail-archive.com, but Mailman will not archive
messages that contain any X-No-Archive: header, even 'X-No-Archive:

    # Common practice seems to favor "X-No-Archive: yes".  No other
value for
    # this header seems to make sense, so we'll just test for it's
