Forwarding and bouncing let you send a message to more recipients
you specify. Bouncing a message uses the <ref id="sendmail"
name="sendmail"> command to send a copy of a message to recipients
as if they were original recipients of the message. Forwarding a message
on the other hand allows you to add comments or modify the message
before it is resend.
Bouncing and forwarding let you send an existing message to recipients
that you specify. Bouncing a message uses the <ref id="sendmail"
name="sendmail"> command to send a copy to alternative addresses as if
they were the message's original recipients. Forwarding a message, on
the other hand, allows you to modify the message before it is resent
(for example, by adding your own comments).

Forwarding can be done by including the message in the new message's body
(surrounded by indicating lines) or including it as MIME attachment,
which is controlled by the <ref id="mime_forward"
name="&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward"> variable, and with or without decoding
attachments like in the pager, controlled by the <ref id="forward_decode"
name="&dollar;forward&lowbar;decode"> resp. <ref id="mime_forward_decode"
name="&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward&lowbar;decode"> variables.
The desired forwarding format may depend on the content, therefore
<em/&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward/ is a quad option and can be set to
``ask-no'' for example.
Forwarding can be done by including the original message in the new
message's body (surrounded by indicating lines) or including it as a MIME
attachment, depending on the value of the <ref id="mime_forward"
name="&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward"> variable. Decoding of attachments,
like in the pager, can be controlled by the <ref id="forward_decode"
name="&dollar;forward&lowbar;decode"> and <ref id="mime_forward_decode"
name="&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward&lowbar;decode"> variables,
respectively. The desired forwarding format may depend on the content,
therefore <em/&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward/ is a quadoption which, for
example, can be set to ``ask-no''.
Messages are always forwarded with full headers, except when
&dollar;mime&lowbar;forward=no, &dollar;forward&lowbar;decode=yes and
<ref id="forward_weed" name="&dollar;forward&lowbar;weed">=yes
(which is the default).
<ref id="forward_weed" name="&dollar;forward&lowbar;weed">=yes (which

Editing the message to forward is the same procedure as in sending or
replying to a message.
