Nope, you are spot-on. And it's not because of the -mime option. And
it's not MH-E that is putting the draft in "draft," it is forw's
handling of the -build option, which is used by MH-E. From forw(1):

       The  -build switch is intended to be used by the Emacs mh-e interface to 
nmh.  It
       implies -nowhatnowproc.  It causes a file <mh-dir>/draft to be created,  
       ing  the  draft message that would normally be presented to the user for 
       No mail is actually sent.

I'm guessing this was done so that MH-E could find the draft that forw
created. I can't think of a clean way for MH-E to find the draft if
DraftFolder were in use.

p.s. Calling in sick again today. Only a month behind and 227 more
messages to go.
