If you post a multipart/alternative message with a text/plain and a
text/html part, the first line Approved: header should work although
its removal from the HTML part isn't 100% guaranteed.
Also, I can';t tell you how to do it in MS Outlook, but many MUAs have
a mechanism for adding true headers to the mail.

And it won't stop the spammers anyway. The spammers may have just been
lucky in spoofing your address, and even if you assume the got your
list address and posting address from spyware on one of your member's
computers, they have it.

We gave you the advice. Post with an Approved: header or an Approved:
first line in a multipart/alternative message. You can do it.
