That's exactly what the "Forward934" extension changes. If you're using
that extension, when you select "Forward", it wraps the message with "---
begin forwarded message" and "--- end forwarded message" rather than the

Sure. The "bounces" list is just another list. All the "bounce" script
does is, given "your-list" and "email@example.com" as arguments, creates
a message like:
approve yl-passwd unsubscribe your-list firstname.lastname@example.org
approve b-passwd subscribe bounces email@example.com
Nothing to keep you from creating such a message yourself by hand...
