I can understand fully why you want that feature. The main problem to implement such a feature is that there is no standard way of how "forwarded" mails are constructed, and thus the only way to make such a feature only remotely usable would be to support the formats the most common mailers use. I'd hate to write such code.

I would of course be interested in finding a way to solve problems like this, but I'm failing to come up with one right now.
