`e' in Summary will let you edit a mail message.  It'll give you an
editable version of the message.  `C-c C-c' when you're done.  Put the
right stuff back into the message, which means [a] correct boundaries
and [b] if necessary, MIME-Version and Content-Type in the forwarded
message itself.  Make sure the boundary specified in Content-Type is
the actual boundary used in the body.  (There's some funkiness
regarding an extra leading `-', I think; I'm forgetting the details
now.  Try one thing, if it doesn't work, tweak it a little bit more.)
Make the boundaries used in the encapsulated mail different from the
encapsulating forwarder, or the MIME parser will be confused.

Unfortunately, there are no tools to help you to make sure this is
done right; the originating mailer should have done it right for you
in the first place.  So just be careful as you mess with it.

Sanity: Copy the message and work on the copy, just in case you really
need to get back to the original version sent to you.  Use `B c' in
Summary to copy it to, say, some other mail group to work on.

Me, too, but I proselytize anyway.  And it's why I provide help here
from time to time.
