(Are you trying to change the "headers" for all subscribers or just
yourself?)

I have done a "study" of the various mail distribution options short,
shortbsmtp, fullbsmtp, full, ietf.  The following are my results using
a local test list to a local address at the Listserv 1.7c level with
options: reply-to=list, respect; X-Tags= Yes.  In all caes, the Date:
field was the same format (day, dd mon yyyy hh:mm:ss zone), and the
Subject: was consistent.  Neither is show here; the other headers are
show in order of their appearance.

The reason I went thru this exercise was to figure out if certain MTAs
could be tamed if headers were somehow beat into submission.  My vote
(and my 2): IETF.
