How to restore blank emails in sent items folder (subject, body, recipient)

Hi everyone,
I have an account with Sympatico (MSN live mail based), and all my emails were on their server.
I tried to export emails to Outlook 2003.
Everything went fine for Inbox, but the Sent Items and another folder didn't export.
So I moved the Sent Items of Sympatico under Inbox, and then it went well under Oulook's Inbox.
The problem is that all the Sent Items emails are blank (body, subject, recipient), and they are not any more on the Sympatico server.
I can see the text in the Internet headers of the email, I tried to repair the .pst file, disabled all plugins, update Outlook, nothing worked...
Is it still possible to restore these emails?

    Then the headers are misformed so Outlook cannot interpret them. Guess you have to settle for this, at least you can read the messages, albeit a little clumsy.

    Do you think it's possible to restore these emails? Or a software to organise these misformed headers?
