But I've one more query - is there anyway to remove the extraneous Received:
headers in the message. The one generated by my box's sendmail when it
receives the message is really of no interest to anyone else, and the one
generated by the mail server when it receives it isn't much better, as
they've both got names which are either not known to the world or else are
transient. I suppose if could remove the HReceived: lines from the relevant
sendmail.cf files, but that would probably do more harm than good (and no,
I'm not planning a mass spam campaign :-) )
