Default How do I "unforward" mail, was How do I point a mail client at Microsoft outlook?

Thanks, but see below.

I couldn't get it to work with exchange.
I'm told Microsoft is holding up IMAP requests.
I did get it to work with cableone.
The relevant account is a thin wrapper on gmail.
I have the mail I want, sort of.
I had to hit forward rather a lot.
So all my messages are wrapped in forwarding boilerplate.
Is there a convenient way I can unwrap them?
