"Remove These Headers" in MailScanner.conf

I have just come across a pretty good looking list of headers that you 
probably don't want in your incoming mail. These include headers that 
trigger "read receipts", as well as headers whose presence might break 
either your mailbox store or your users' email applications.

Remove These Headers = Disposition-Notification-To: Return-Receipt-To: 
X-Confirm-Reading-To: Disposition-Notification-To: Receipt-Requested-To: 
Confirm-Reading-To: MDRcpt-To: MDSend-Notifications-To: Smtp-Rcpt-To: 
Return-Receipt-To: Read-Receipt-To: X-Confirm-Reading-To: 
X-Acknowledge-To: Delivery-Receipt-To: X-PMrqc: Errors-To: X-IMAPBase: 
X-IMAP: X-UID: Status: X-Status: X-UIDL: X-Keywords: X-Mozilla-Status: 

Use this, or any subset of it, if you want to. I have added it to the 
documentation in the MailScanner.conf file for the next release (which 
will be tomorrow or Saturday probably).
