Email Rules in Outlook Express

I have a rule which forwards any mail I receive at home to my work email.  The rule filters out any mail which is *already* from my work email.

Works great except for one thing:  when I receive these forwarded emails at work, they contain only the header info from my home.  They don't include information about the *real* origin of the email.  They look no different, header-wise, than the emails my wife sends me from home to work.

I mean, if Bob sent Mike an email, and Mike forwarded that email to Doug, Doug could see that Bob originally sent the email (this is stupid and obvious, I know, but I'm trying to make my case here).  That's not what I get with OE.  All emails look like they originated from my home email address.

I can't find anything about this in the options and help.  What am I missing?

To get the full header forwarded in Outlook Express, you need to forward as attachment. You can see that for yourself if you forward yourself a message and then forward with attachment.

Now the rule list only allows you to forward to people, so you cannot forward as attachment.

Sorry, war1
