Yes. That is, forwarding as an attachment /successfully/ is 'equivalent
to' pasting the item into the webparser and clicking 'process spam'.
Similarly, there is another step after that one, the step in which you
are presented the result of the parse so that you can check or uncheck to
notify results - the approval process of the notify. Until that step is
completed, any spam submitted remains unreported.
You should have received an email in which SC sez it is ready to process
your spam and it gives you a link to click and has a copy of the spam
headers When you click on that link you can see the parse results and
'send spam reports now' or 'preview' or 'cancel' - just like the result
when you submit via webparser.
Forwarding as attachment is just another way to get the spam into the
parser, with some additional things which can go wrong; so emailing spam
to the parser unsuccessfully is much /worse/ than submitting to the
kibitzer, not SC admin
