In KB Article 217311, "Auto-Forwarded Messages Do Not Contain Appropriate Mail Headers", Microsoft described my problem exactly: "When you set an Inbox Assistant rule that auto-forwards mail messages, mail headers may not be included in forwarded mail. Auto-forwarded mail appears to come from you rather than the original sender."
They also admitted that "Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Outlook Express. " And they offered no other information or even hope that this would ever be fixed.
That was supposed to apply to OE 5.0, and the latest review was July of 2004. Well. now I'm in OE6.0 and experiencing the same problem. Two days of Web searching was totally fruitless -- almost nobody is asking about this, and nobody has answered it.
Does anyone here know how to fix this?
My guess is that there is probably some Registry key that "allows" you to not forward header information, and that MS in their usual imperious wisdom has declared that the default should be the wrong one.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
