One solution is to save out the attachment from the original message (which
should be named Email.htm), forward the message amd remove the 'untitled'
attachment, then drag back the saved out Email.htm.
Alternatively, is Bounce... a viable alternative? This won't mess with the
orginal email, but will, of course, mean you can't add a covering message.
