You may try to use your method to forward these Outlook messages to a POP
account that you'll process within Outlook Express, using your script method
that recreates the correct headers.
Then you may submit them all in one operation to spamcop using attachments.
(try first to generate these grouped attachment into a message to yourself
instead of SpamCop to make sure they are properly formatted.)
Shamely the conversion from the Outlook MAPI store to the RFC822 MIME format
is not simple...
But there may exist to perform all this by a single script that will process
several MAPI messages at once and will generate a single message containing
in attachment the MAPI messages converted back to RFC822 format.
It's not obvious to do. So why not filtering the messages first in Outlook
Express (configured to NOT delete the received messages from your POP3
account at your ISP), so that you can process them in their original format,
then read your mails in Outlook (and simply delete the messages).
MAPI in Outlook is really a bad thing of that product, as this storage
format should not be used for emails received from POP3 accounts on the
Internet (instead the MAPI format should be emulated on the fly to integrate
the native RFC822 messages by reference into a MAPI store, the actual
messages being stored in a RFC822 store, such as Outlook Express.
My opinion is that you should better not use Outlook to process Internet
messages. Use it for your local MAPI applications and messaging on your
private net, and use Outlook Express which is much more secure than Outlook
when processing any message from a Internet POP3 account.
It's just a shame that Oulook had never offered a better integration of
Outlook Express (or a shame that Outlook Express was not made so that it can
be controled from Outlook within its user interface, where they would have
shared for the Internet their contact list and non-MAPI mail stores...)
I hate Outlook despite I have it; I don't use it. Outlook Express is much
better for anything related to the Internet, as it complies much better with
