Outlook Express forwarding rule does not include previous headers

The president of my company has all of his home E-mail forwarding to the company E-mail address with a simple forwarding rule.  Apparently, for some time now, it has been removing the header information for the original incoming E-mail in the messages forwarded by the rule.  I.e. the forwarded message shows that it came from his home account, but it does not include who the message was originally sent from.  He has been forwarding messages from the work account to people who he feels need the information only to find they were included in the original E-mail sent to his home.  When he manually forwards messages on the home machine, all the header information is included.

I have had him delete and recreate the forwarding rule along with increasing the time between send/receives.  "Include message in reply..." is checked.

Appreciate the help.

Hello ptpadilla,

Something si wrong with the Outlook Express profile or identity.  Create a new Outlook Express identity.

Hope this helps!

Could it be as simple as the setting shown in my attached screenshot having been disabled?

BillDL-Per the original question, "include message in reply" is checked, thanks.  

war1-Sounds like a pretty good shot.  Since this particular machine is at the president's home I don't have immediate access to test.  Will reply ASAP after I've had the opportunity to try it.  If the boss would have went for "go to my PC" or the equivelant I could take care of these things a lot easier.

Whoops, sorry.  For some reason I totally missed your footnote in the question that you had already tried this.

Sorry for the delay.  The President is touchy about me taking time away from the office, even when it's for his own home computers.  I've been told that I won't be making a trip unless there is a more substantial problem for me to take care of.  WIll advise asap.

I'm actually still waiting for the big dog to grace me with allowing a trip to his home to take care of this problem, but I'm confident it will do the trick.  Will update asap.  Thanks again war1!
