User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101107 Firefox/4.0b8pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2.12) Gecko/20101027 Thunderbird/3.1.6

Took me a long time to figure out what was going on.

If View>Headers is set to All, then forwarding a message will forward it with all headers.

Now that the header pane scrolls, there isn't a lot of incentive to turn off view all headers, so it took me a while to figure out that this configuration affected both the display in Tbird, and the messages forwarded. Seems like these two settings shouldn't be bound together like this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.View->Headers->All
2.Forward a message
3.
Actual Results:  
Forwarded message includes all headers.

Expected Results:  
Forwarded message includes normal headers.
So that's the way to currently forward all header. if we would shut that down we probably would need to have an extra options to let people who want to forward all headers the possibility to do it.
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All

That's proposed in MailNews Core bug 244432, so this bug may be a dupe itself.

This bug has survived into current versions -- could this be resolved with the mindset that resolved Bug 464782 had provided?

See Bug 947701.
