In the message list view it should be possible to to copy a selected message and paste it into a 
text-application like word. The inserted text can equal an forwarded inline message with date, 
subject, from and to attributes.

If my explaination is hard to understand (sorry, I'm not a natural speaker) you can test it with 
Outlook Express and MS Word. Select a message, hit Ctrl-C, switch to Word and press Ctrl-V.

this sshould be a dup on mozilla mailnews
I don't think so. Bug 189932 describes only transfering headers (all headers, for archiving it to a 
personal text journal all headers is IMHO overkill), and not the body itself.

That's a superficial understanding of what that bug is requesting.  The point 
is, Mozilla does not provide multiple data flavors when dragging a message; 
there are many possibilities, and different drop targets will be able to accept 
different subsets of those flavors.
