There is absolutely nothing wrong with these headers, except that =
bringing them into the usually used Received by: style wouldn't hurt.

Someone (some*thing* to be exact) is always touching your mails on =, otherwise none of us would see this.  It's debugging =
output even some of the least sophisticated MUA's will weed out for you.  =
If yours doesn't, you can either get used to it or use a different MUA =

I don't know how to do it in exmh, but I bet there probably is someone =
who can help you out with that.

btw: You cannot trust SMTP mail by definition (almost ;-).  So, take some =
prozac to feed the paranoia and be done with it ;-).

Relax, nothing wrong with this setup.
