There is no algorithm which is guaranteed to convert a message back to
it's original state, since all sorts of things may have happend to the
message during Anomy processing, up to entire attachments being removed.
However, in many cases there are relatively simple things which could be
done to reverse the effects of a particular sanitizer rule, such as the
sed suggestion posted earlier.
It really depends on what you need. If you really need pristine messages
for something (e.g. an automated script which gets input via. e-mail) it
may make the most sense to try and reconfigure your mailer to simply
skip Anomy for that mailbox.
