Good advice, BB -- it may be worth noting that depending on the software that's being used, there are some settings that could interfere with the Forward/Edit/Send scenario.

Netscape Messenger 4.5/4.6, for example, offers three default behaviors for the "Forward" button: "Inline", "Quoted", and "As Attachment". "Inline" and "Quoted" will let you edit the outgoing message before you send it -- to delete part or all of the header or signature, for example. But with "As Attachment", you are only allowed to add your own message, which in general the recipient will see above the forwarded message. Lots of people who love jokes and inspiring stories and chain letters seem to only know the "As Attachment" method.

Messenger allows you to change the default (Edit | Preferences | Mail & Newsgroups | Messages), or you can override the default if you use Message | Forward As... rather than using the Forward button. Or, right-click on the Forward button and select one of the three.

Hope this helps...
Ron
