you will find quite exhaustive explanation of the setting needed to be put in place here:

General good setting of MAPI (in troubleshooting tab of properties) are:

- conservative mass deletion
- always convert RTF to HTML
- no hystory upload for large messages
- refresh connection every minute
- restrict seach to dowloaded itemes only

>> The filter only processes messages as they pass through the message queue. Outlook likely decides it owns the mail and can do whatever it wants with it, and modify them in-place, something that can't be caught and processed by the filter.
>> I've been told in the past that Outlook could be configured not to act as a selfish [expletive], but this may have changed with recent version of Outlook / MAPI. Outlook should be configured to always send as HTML (instead of Rich Text), and there was one or two settings that could be changed, one of them being "Always convert RTF to HTML" in the troubleshooting tab of the CGP connection settings, but this may not apply anymore. I can't get hold or remember the second setting, sorry.
