No, I don't think so. I just tried it myself, and I noticed that
Thunderbird automatically enables S/MIME encryption in such a situation
- -- and this clashes with PGP/MIME. You should forward the message as
attachment and before sending choose from the menu Options > Security
the option "Do not encrypt message" (that is disable S/MIME security).
