Did you try just deleting the Message-ID or replacing it with a Mailman
If you are not VERPing or personalizing deliveries, replacing the
Message-ID will not be completely effective because the message with the
replaced Message-ID will still be sent to chunks with multiple
recipients. Whether deleting the Message-ID will be effective or not
will depend on when in its processing the MTA adds its own Message-ID.

Enable verp by putting
VERP_DELIVERY_INTERVAL = 1
in mm_cfg.py and then replace the Message-ID with a Mailman generated
or maybe just fix your archiving system.
Note that replacing the Message-ID in this way is a violation of mail
RFCs and I don't recommend it.
What happens if a local user sends a message with multiple To:, Cc:
and/or Bcc: recipients. Doesn't that confuse your archiving system too?
What do you do about that?
