Sorry if this has been suggested before - I have an Outlook rule that moves
email into a personal folder and I lost the personal folder the other day

What about a combination of Pymacs, Emacs and Word? You can write extensions
to Emacs in Python (Pymacs it is called, a Google search will find it) - it
has direct access into the buffers, uses Emacs elisp routines etc etc. 

Python has a Win32 interface and can access DLL's etc so you should (??????
:-)) be able to write an extension in Emacs that puts the text directly into
a Word document????? I haven't done anything like this though - so I could
be way, way off base :-)

Depending on how badly you want it of course but it might be worth
investigating :-)
