It should. Unfortunately, too many people have a problem determining
where the real headers end, and the fake headers begin. I have run
into people that don't even look past the list server information to
see where the list server received the message from... (All your
messages came from <something>.redhat.com.) How these same people
manages to get things set up to verify an e-mail signature is a
mystery to me - maybe someone sets it up for them?
