So far, the best way to mess with MS-Outlook users is to combine

my_hdr X-Message-Flag: `message-flag` 

with the "begin " trick, where message-flag is a script like this:


which generates headers like
X-Message-Flag: Message text blocked: VIOLATION OF US 1201(a)(3)

...and of course the message text does appear blocked, because of
the "block " bug.  Help! says the MS-Outlook user -- my incoming
mail is being censored!

I had Mutt set up to do this in mail I posted to the pho list,
and it either sparked off a thoughtful conversation on whether
or not we can trust proprietary software not to censor speech,
or made people say I was being a dick.  I forget which.
