Outlook 2002 Puzzlement

Yesterday, I stepped up to Outlook 2002 from Outlook Express mostly so I could try out the Cloudmark SpamNet spam filter (which has been working great and is highly recommended!)

However, in Outlook I am missing a couple features that I've became very reliant on.

In Outlook Express you could easily view a message's source under the message proprieties without opening the e-mail. This is particularly useful as you can verify if an e-mail is actually spam or a trojanized e-mail without risking infection by opening the email message traditionally.

A in-depth search of all the menus, help and Microsoft Knowledge Base doesn't describe how you can view a message's source in Outlook 2002 without first opening the message.

The other feature that I'm puzzled isn't included is Copy Shortcut on the right click of any link in an e-mail.

Am I overlooking these features in Outlook somewhere or is there a plug in or a registry hack that could add their functionality? I'll be very grateful to anyone who can shed some light on this!

Oh and don't bug me about using Outlook rather than [Insert other e-mail client here]. I've tried all the other popular clients out there and simply wasn't too impressed with any of them.
