They can do that with their imap client.  Select-all, and then (depending 
on the client,"bounce" or "redirect") should be able to forward the entire 
message, attachments and all, and preserve all existing headers (and gain 
a few new ones).

You can possibly also do the same for him, using fetchmail; use "smtphost" 
and "smtpname" as appropriate (documented in the fetchmail man pages).
