We are obviously not going to agree here but a few more data points: 
using the OWA interface (outlook web access) to an exchange server does 
not add a Received: header for the browser client IP.  Likewise when 
sending from outlook 2003 or 2007 (much more believable as mail clients) 
through exchange, the first Received: header is the server's.
