In principle, you don't need to add a header, since postfix will add a
Received header of the form
Received: from ... (...) by $server (Postfix) ...
so you can get the server here.
but if you to make it easy for procmail developpers, then PREPEND seems
the right way to go.
As Noel says, put it in data restrictions to avoid multiple prepend
actions when mail is sent to multiple recipient.
