Outlook and Outlook Express are notorious for not including the terminating
line correctly for saved messages like they are supposed to.  As such, you
would need to add the terminator line to the message manually before then
loading it into TIdMessage.  Or, if you have not already done so, upgrade
your Indy version to the current development snapshot, which I believe
already contains a fix for this issue.
