When you forward mail from your iOS device, it is the same as forwarding it from your Mac. If you have any doubts, forward a copy to yourself and you will see that it works.
On your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) select the message you wish to forward then Mail > Share > Forward

Sorry, not the same. On the Mac program, you can right click on the message in your inbox, and, select forward AS ATTACHMENT, it is much different than forwarding.

Sorry, but the result is the same - all Mail headers are retained whether it is an attachment or straight forwarded message. Instead of guessing, try it.
The only thing different in appearances is that when you forward an email from either Mac Mail (OSX) or iPad Mail you get the added words: "Begin forwarded message:" that don't appear on mail that is forwarded using the Mac option "Forward as attachment" - in all honesty, those words are necessary to tell the recipient that he/she are receiving a forwarded message as opposed to an original. All of the original headers are retained in both cases.

On the Mac NO headers are adjusted in the attached message, sorry. It's not the same at all. Totally different than what I am asking.

Well, there you go... you've tried it and find it lacking. Here is a way to let the folks at Apple know what you need:
Most third party apps that would closely approach what you need would be dealing with PDFs but, alas, iOS Mail won't export to PDF. Best you stick with Mac OSX Mail until there is a fix.

Yes, when you send a spam email to apple at firstname.lastname@example.org you are required to send the email "as attachment" I do not know what makes it different than a basic forward, but they want it that way. I have not figured out how to on the new iPad.

When forwarding as an attachment all the original headers of the email are preserved, which they need to identify the sender of spam and be able to report the spammer. On the other hand, if you just forward spam, only the contents of the spam message is forwarded and no technical details are preserved.

When Forwarding an Email as an Attachment do this simple step before forwarding:
With the suspect mail selected:
1. Hit CMD-SHIFT-H to reveal the header information,
2. Then Foraward as an Attachment and the header information will be included.
I just tried this with 5 different mails and when you double click the icon of the attached mail that resides on your forwarding mail, you can reveal the complete original header information of the suspect mail - it is identical to the original - word for word.
Perhaps when you just Forward as an Attachment without opening the header first you might lose that data, but if you follow the steps above, it works fine.
I should add that this works on the Mac, not sure about iPad.

Just forwarding as an attachment will do the trick, even without CMD-SHIFT-H. The iPad (iOS) isn't capable of doing this.
