Outlook 2003 and 2007 make it very difficult to trace spam messages because
it reorders the received headers, which makes them untrustworthy, as well as
deleting other headers including X-headers, which may loose some valuable
information needed by ISPs/hosting companies.

Tracing spam is like throwing a bucket of water on a forest file.

Getting clean spam samples when using Outlook is extremely frustrating. When
users attach a clean message for us to submit, Outlook deletes large portions
when dragging and dropping. There seems to be no way to preserve the message
once Outlook touches it. You can't save the message, dragging and dropping
causes strange things to happen and Outlook encodes binary info in the .msg
files.
