It's not Windows, it's the email list server leaving in email headers
that claim the original source address, but it isn't sending from that
address, and the headers that claim the message is unaltered with
authentication codes to prove it, while altering the message.

Many serious, paranoid email servers look at that and discard it as a
deliberately forged message, because according to all of the rules, it is.
