Copying email source code

I use Outlook Express 6 as my email client. I receive many emails containing graphics and formatted text that I would like to tweak a little, before forwarding them. I KNOW that I can edit text and delete some elements but I also know that things like the length are very hard to change. I also know that the format controls are locked into the CODE that is exposed when the SOURCE tab is clicked. Short of doing a course in HTML, I believe I can learn some basics about email source code, by tweaking it and seeing the results. But to document what has been tweaked, I should ideally be able to copy the source code UNCHANGED-by-the-copy-process into e.g. WORD or a Rich-Text-Format editor. I have not found any editor that I can paste source code into and have the copy look identical to the original. I thought FrontPage might do the trick, but it wont open EML. Is there a way of doing what I want to do ?

Since writing my post, I have discovered how I can paste Source Code into FrontPage.
It seems to be quite faithful to the original EXCEPT for the colour coding that is lost.
I have tried pasting into the PasteBin you suggest, and it seems to give the SAME results - faithful reproduction except for the loss of colour coding. Thank you.

I've discovered that the feature I need in an editor is called 'Syntax Highlighting'. SOME text-editors have it.
The source code that I had pasted in Notepad++ suddenly assumed all the characteristic colour coding when I chose 'HTML' in the Language menu. Problem solved !
