This has come up before, *somewhere* that I remember seeing it.

The problem is that to do it safely, the mail user agent forwarding the
message can't actually *forward* it, it has to do something closer to
what Mutt refers to as a 'bounce' -- and even that may not preserve
enough headers to do the job properly.

Or do you mean "spamtrap/sneakemail" kinda stuff?
