For Evolution, one has to edit the per-account gconf key apps|evolution|
eplugin|email_custom_header|customHeader.  You can create a custom
header with a specific set of possible values (not a general text entry
field, as far as I can determine).  In the message composition window,
the Insert|Custom Header menu item displays a dialog with the custom
headers contained in the gconf db shown, and a drop-down list of
possible values by each one.  Thus, one could configure a true
"Approved:" header and assign the passwords to all the lists for which
one needs them to its drop-down list.

You can change these, of course, with the Gnome gconf configuration
editor, a process that's pretty geeky but not very difficult.  It's kind
of like editing the registry in MS Windows, and not that different from
the about:config db in T-bird, although T-bird does have the advantage
that it presents a text entry field for custom headers rather than a
list of pre-configured values from which to select.
