Cliff, you would be better off looking at the 
action_quarantine_entire_message().  However, this is the command I use 
courtesy of DFS that utilizes the information from the quarantine to 
recreate a valid mbox format message.

(echo "From `cat SENDER | tr -d '<>'` `date`"; cat ENTIRE_MESSAGE) > 

I do not know for certain this includes bcc:, etc. and is an exact copy.   I 
use it primarily about 1x a month to retrieve something that I block.

Perhaps it will help.
