Not a problem. (You should really include in your reply only the parts
you're responding to, anyway.)

Next time you get one, please feel welcome to send it to me _with full
headers_. In mutt, the latter means using the "h" (show full headers)
command just prior to forwarding the mail.
To explain, most MUAs by default conceal from display to the user all
but a few of the SMTP mail headers present on each message. Those
concealed inevitably include the "Received" and envelope "From "
headers that are vital to understanding where a message went.

Let's just say that I consider many of the analyses I've seen from that
site to be misleading, and its recommendations to be doubtful.
