Er, no, the cat box doesn't have my credentials nor know my email address, so 
it can't send spam from me.   If it sends spam from someone other than me, the 
Received header field makes my /legitimate/ email look more like spam, because 
both the cat's spam and my legitimate email have the same IP address in the 
Received header field.   In this case I /definitely/ don't want the Received 
header field.
