correct method to "bounce" a message

Re: correct method to "bounce" a message (Richard Porter)

I have two or three email addresses that are published on the web for 
particular purposes to do with a local organization.  When a message 
arrives that is genuine rather than spam, I send it on to the intended 
person (secretary, treasurer, etc) using MPro's "bounce" facility 

The advantage of "bounce" rather than "forward" is that the treasurer 
(say) sees the message in her inbox as coming from the original sender 
rather than from me.  (Is not this the intention of "bounce"?)

MPro's bounce behaviour, though, puzzles me.  The manual doesn't say 
much about it.  It seems that the new recipient is added as a BCC and 
the original message is re-sent -- with the result that I get another 
copy of it.  Is this the way that "bounce" is meant to work?  I don't 
recall this happening in the days of Marcel when I bounced a message.

Also, tiresomely, I find that I have to go to the Outgoing Queue and 
re-open the bounced message and check that my own address as "Sender" 
has been filled in (as distinct from "From", which of course shows the 
original sender).  Sometimes Sender is filled in as me but sometimes 
it isn't, in which case I have to do it manually, or else my ISP's 
server (understandably) refuses to transmit the outgoing message from 
somebody it doesn't know.  I haven't fathomed out why MPro fills it in 
sometimes but not other times.

Am I misunderstanding something?
