    Can anybody advise Boyce on these two parts?

    X-Sieve: CMU Sieve 2.3

    Googling this, suggests some type of XML is involved (somewhere!)

    X-Spam-known-sender: yes

    Is it just me, or is this always the case (!).

    Sieve is a language for email filtering published/sponsered by Carnegie Mellon University (hence CMU). I suspect the header is just saying that it was passed through such a thing.
    Note that 'X' headers are not standardised, so can be anything the implementor wants.

    This one (again a 'X' header - so don't rely on it) seems to be a product of Fastmail, and intended as part of a defence against spam. Like most anti-spam efforts it may or may not be useful.

    Harry.
