There's no way (that I've found) to bounce a message from Outlook. By "bounce" (aka "redirect"), I mean to send the message to a different address w/o mucking with headers, so that it goes to the second address looking just as if it had been sent there originally (modulo any "Received" headers, but those aren't particularly relevant at this point). Forwarding is not equivalent. as that adds all sorts of crap to the body of the message *and* loses the headers.
Why is this a big deal? Because to retrain Bayesian-type spam filters, you need to provide something relatively close to the original message. Outlook just can't do it.
 There are add-on modules that will do this for Outlook. The chance of getting one installed and working on an existing collection of ~20,000 pcs of various vintages is 0.
