Here are the secret rules:
1. Make sure there is *no blank line* between the headers your mail
client is providing, and the Approved: line. That is the likely cause
of your experience; the Approved: line then becomes the start of the
message, instead of being seen as a header.
2. Delete all headers from the original message *except* To:, From:, Subject:,
and Date:, all of which must immediately follow the Approved: line with no
blank lines between, but with one blank line after the last header before
the actual message body. Make sure you strip *all other* header lines,
and that no header line is more than one screen line; you may have to delete
part of To:, for example, to ensure that.
You wind up with:

The order of the last four header lines does not matter.

Yes, if you follow its (unwritten) rules... not even in the FAQ, AFAIK.
