Actually what he wants (maybe) is forward as attachment, which he's not
getting for whatever reason.
There's two things at play here: if you're using plain-text composition
settings (as many of us probably do) then forwarding as attachment
retains the HTMLness, but forwarding inline converts to plain text and
things like images are gone. If you compose HTML email, then the images
will be there in either forwarding method.
You can compose/reply/forward in HTML by holding down shift when you
press the button.
