I've got an email going from point A to point B.  I'd like to forward
that email (at point B - using procmail) to point C.  However, is
there a way to do it so that it doesn't appear the message has been
forwarded?  Here's the problem:

Message a:

From:A
To: B
Subject: Please call
Please give me a call at home


When message gets forwarded, it looks like this:
from: B
to: C:
Subject: Please Call
>from A
>To: B
>Subject: Please call
>Please give me a call

What I'd like it to look like, comming to C is:
From: A
To: C
Subject: Please call
Please give me a call

Is this possible?  If so, how?

In pine, you can use the 'bounce' command.

Why don't you just do this with sendmail?

in your home directory do this:

echo my.new.email@newhost.com > .forward

this will automatically forward your incoming mail to the emailadress specified in your .forward
