Outlook doesn't store the original content, so it's not possible.  Just look
at the code in the Outlook2000 directory of this project to see all the pain
it takes to partially reconstruct the original!  Outlook simply wasn't
designed with current Internet email standards in mind, and scatters the
message it gets into a large number of fields and properties that seem
originally designed for a proprietary MS email format.  Some things can't be
recovered at all (e.g., the original MIME armor is *almost* always lost).
