Before I forward a message, I like to delete a lot of the bumph that came with it in order to clean it up. Windows Live Mail doesn't seem to allow me to do that, as did the old Outlook Express.

When you try to forward an email in the Windows Live Mail, the software automatically transforms that email into an attachment, making it impossible to forward. Try to forward it to a Gmail account and then send it further. Gmail allows you to edit attachments, forwarding items, inline resources, etc. I have seen other users with this problem, but there is no fix as of right now. Just forward the email to another account and then edit it from there.
