Hi Tassilo,

my former email program used to quoted forwarded messages and even wrote 
"Begin forwarded message:" in the beginning of the message. I find this very 
helpful since otherwise, it might happen that the person you forward the 
message to thinks that (s)he received the message directly and will then answer 
the message to the original sender. In many cases this can cause trouble...

;; see http://osdir.com/ml/emacs.gnus.user/2002-11/msg00011.html
(setq message-make-forward-subject-function 'message-forward-subject-fwd)
