As long as you don't Cc: or Bcc: anyone other than the list with this

If not, try sending the message to the list with a Bcc: to yourself.
Then, if possible, examine the raw message received via Bcc:. It may
not be sufficient to look at it in Agent, unless Agent can show you
the raw message as received. You may be able to save it to a file from
Agent and examine that with an editor, or possibly view Agent's mail
folder with an editor.
