Is this the case with all messages you save externally? What happens if you try to forward an email in Outlook that has not been saved to an external file?

Perhaps you just don't have the option set to include the original text in a Forwarded message.

enter image description here

What normally happens when an Outlook email is saved externally as a .msg file, then opened, is that it comes up exactly as if you had opened it while it was still in the Outlook data file. It shows the same display of the contents and the same ribbon toolbar with Reply, Forward, etc.

If this isn't what happens when you save an email externally, I would look at the process you're using to save it. Are you using File/Save As? Are you choosing .msg as the file format?
