Some of the headers you cite come from Smartlist. They are necessary to
avoid loops and to detect bounces.

If a message was caught by the spam filter and I reforward it to the list,
my client makes a copy of the original headers as X- headers. Finally, we
don't filter out any other headers sent in by the user.

Cheers,
