I have seen the (good) other tips but at first I understand from
"exactly the same" that there shouldn't be any additional Received:

If that is necessary you could do the following:
- Don't start the queue-running sendmail
- Copy all files on a regular basis from /var/spool/mqueue to the same
  directory on the second system.
- Do a queue-run on that system.
