I either use "forw -mime" (as Neil mentioned), or I put a #forw
directive in the message body (which is what "forw -mime" does)...
or I copy the message into the drafts folder and then edit it to
look the way I want, like:

        cp `mhpath cur` `mhpath new +drafts`
        comp -use -e vi last

When I edit someone else's message, I take out most of the
header fields (Received:, etc.) and change the "From:" and
"To:" fields.  I might edit the message body some -- maybe
removing an attachment or cleaning up some particularly ugly
HTML -- or else I just send it as-is.
