Looks like you fell at the first hurdle.

I intended to fall at the first hurdle :-).

I.e. I was trying to demonstrate that a From header would get added by
somebody en route. More worrying is that my second experiment, with
FROM: <>, got eaten somewhere, which I had not expected.

Interesting combination of header
prepend, append, and insertion by various MTAs. Did Yahoo! prepended the
From:? (How did it know your email address?) -- it appears before
Yahoo!s Received.

Yes, I think it was Yahoo, and they took it from the envelope sender (MAIL

above.proper inserted its Message-ID: below the From: and prepended its
Date:, Received:s and X-Authentication-Warning:, and appended its List-*.
My machines appended X-Cam-* and prepended Received: and X-Sieve.

Yes, I have inserted my own Date for the next experiment. And at least
Yahoo were not guilty of creating the Message-ID.
