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.

something  like

/^Received:  from localhost/    IGNORE
/^Received: from mygateway.mydomain.com/  IGNORE

that appears to help a lot ...
