Is the message still visible if you use "grephistory" to convert 
Message-ID into an SM token, and then "sm" to retrieve the article with 
the token?

If yes, then this is an INN issue.  If no, then it's something with 
Outlook Express and you'll have to find a forum where people know about 
that program.
