This field is added by the ezmlm software that is used to manage our

More things in heaven and earth, Horatio?

 From the procmailex manpage:

   If  you are subscribed to several mailinglists and people cross-post to
   some of them, you usually receive several  duplicate  mails  (one  from
   every  list).   The following simple recipe eliminates duplicate mails.
   It tells formail to keep an 8KB cache file in which it will  store  the
   Message-IDs  of  the most recent mails you received.  Since Message-IDs
   are guaranteed to be unique for every new mail, they are ideally suited
   to  weed  out  duplicate mails.  Simply put the following recipe at the
   top of your rcfile, and no duplicate mail will get past it.

	  :0 Wh: msgid.lock
	  | formail -D 8192 msgid.cache
