It's a requirement for MTAs to add Received: headers as the mail
passes through them to avoid mailing loops. Trying to subvert this
is a bad idea...

Normally, your mail client will keep track of all Sent messages if
you configure it properly. That's a better choice than having the
MTA do it, but you can look into the content_filter mechanism to
archive mail which passes through if you really want to do so.
