How to have a sieve extract and forward a message / RFC822 body part as a new message ?

Consider a scenario where Mail users are instructed to forward (AS ATTACHMENT), to a specific address,  any messages that arrive in their Junk folder, that they think were not spam, I.e. False-positive.

The actual mechanism for reporting a False-positive to Proofpoint is to access the Proofpoint User Interface, under the 'Quarantine' folder folder, select the message, and click on "report false positive" button.

The goal is to get the specific messages from the users' Junk folder onto the Proofpoint system and into the 'Quarantine' folder. In other words, the goal is to implement a scheme whereby users are able to provide messages that were incorrectly treated as spam to Proofpoint, presumably so that Proofpoint can lower their false positive rate.

Requirement is to have a sieve script which extracts the message / RFC822 body part and does a redirect (or otherwise create a new message) to a new envelope recipient, which will then be routed to the 'Quarantine' folder on the Proofpoint system.
