Cannot convert outlook email to pdf - SaveToPdf-Error

I am a developer and I am using Aspose to convert Outlook mails to pdf. Unfortunately the SaveToPdf()-method does not works for some mails; mostly for those mails containing (ms-office)-tables… I am using the following code to do the conversion:

MapiMessage mail = MapiMessage.FromFile("OutlookMail.msg");
string someExtraText = "\\par " + "This is an outlook mail conversion. The sender is: " + mail.SenderName + " \\line ";
using (System.IO.MemoryStream rtfStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    System.IO.StreamWriter tw = new System.IO.StreamWriter(rtfStream);
    tw.Write(@"{\rtf1 \ansi\ansicpg1252{\fonttbl{\f1001\fswiss\fcharset0 Arial;}} \f1001" + someExtraText + @"\line \pard \brdrb \brdrs\brdrw10\brsp20 {\fs4\~}\par \pard \line");

    Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Aspose.Words.Document(rtfStream);

    catch (Exception exp)

And Iam becoming the following error message:

Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt.(Aspose.Words)
Program Location:

bei ?.?.?(ShapeBase ?, SizeF ?)

bei Aspose.Words.Document.SaveToPdf(Int32 pageIndex, Int32 pageCount, String fileName, PdfOptions pdfOptions)
bei Aspose.Words.Document.SaveToPdf(String fileName)

Can you imagine why this is going wrong?

Iam using Aspose.Words and Aspose.Pdf, Aspose.Pdf.Kit

For confidentiality purposes I can not share the mails. I have attached a screenshot of the mail to show you it’s structure

Many Thanks in Advance
