You can use Applescript to export the message from Mail to your file share.

If you use Omnis, store the raw message as a file and use its metadata in your database.

MacMail saves it as a .EML file, which you can double click on, and view again in MacMail, and it doesn’t add it back into your storage, just acts as a viewer.  I would think OutLook does the same, but not 100% sure of that.
