Thank you very much... your advice appears to be spot on...
I've added a header_check to my postfix configuration on my mailman
server to prune the headers from my internal gateway before they are
passed to mailman.
/^Received: from localhost/ IGNORE
/^Received: from mygateway.mydomain.com/ IGNORE
that appears to help a lot ...
