Better to either use Ctrl+U, or to forward the message as an attachment.

Mailhosts is very important when you have screwy routing. It helps to keep
track of spam sources without mis-reporting my own mail server on two
counts; SBC Yahoo! DSL Service email is received by MX servers in the
prodigy.net domain, but handed off to mail servers in the yahoo.com domain,
for email to a pacbell.net mailbox, and for a certain web mail account I
use, redirecting from that account to a local MX server, then processing
the spam from there avoids parsing errors when attempting to re-direct from
that account to SpamCop. Either way, the SC parser has, in the past, wanted
to report my mail service because the routing wasn't "trusted".
(Prodigy.net to yahoo.com handling pacbell.net email looked wrong;
ahmegami.net to aosake.net looked wrong.)
