Oulook 2003 already does this by default: all messages are shown without
performing any internet transmissions (downloading of images, form
postings, Java-scripts, etc.). 

Simply showing HTML formatted text is not terribly dangerous, or else
you wouldn't browse the web. (Unless, of course, there's a local
buffer-overrun vulnerability in your HTML parser. But even IE/Outlook
hasn't had one of those crop up yet, to my knowledge.)
