Yes, include_rfc2369_headers=No on the affected lists and not on the others.  Oddly enough, I remember doing this, because I was getting complaints about users with mobile devices like Blackberries complaining that the actual email ends up hidden below the headers and they have to do a lot of scrolling to get to the message.  I moved all of the same information to the footer, so we are sort of compliant to the RFC while making the message more easily read.  (Also, the MTA on another server is running a tumbleweed spam/virus filter that tacks on an ocean of its own headers as well; I have no control over this....)

Knowing this, however, may give me something I've wanted for a while; a way to include the custom header on the 'public' lists that send messages to the broad subscriber base and not include them on 'internal' messages that are only sent between a small group of folks putting together the final content for the public list.

Maybe that's possible with a Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) update run by some other sysadmin.  The version number displayed on the Mailman admin pages still says 2.1.9, is there a simple way to get the full release number or 'upgrade' date?  (I was previously told the version was 2.1.9 release 6.el5.)

Yes, that's what I get for typing from memory...

So, the /bin/mailmanctl restart only restarts the qrunners, but that is enough to enact any changes to CookHeaders.py, correct?
