It's controlled by a setting in the EUDORA.INI file. If you open that file
in a text editor (preferably while Eudora is closed), look for a setting
called "TabooHeaders". It will consist of a comma-separated list of all the
headers that Eudora is configured to NOT display. If you add X-Spam-Report
to that list, you should no longer see it until you press blah blah blah.
However, I see now that this header is not present on all incoming mail, but
it appears on all MSUNAG messages. If I'm reading the X-Spam-Report
correctly (no guarantee of that), list.msu.edu is on a blacklist that MSU's
spam detection uses. Brian Martinez's message did not really address the
actual problem here.

Thanks. Indeed, I do use Eudora, maybe that is why this does not seem to
bother others. I do have it set to not display most message headers by
default (i.e., I have to press "blah blah blah" to see all the headers), but
the X-Spam headers still get displayed, maybe I am just missing some other
setting, I would be very glad if someone could point that out to me.

My sentiments exactly.
