Joe, I'm going to have to take exception to your post here. First let me qualify this by saying that this in no way is intended as a "flame". However, I do not want to let such statements you are making go unchallenged. To tell someone who may not be very familiar with the internet and email that they will protect themselves from 95 percent of viruses by leaving Outlook / Outlook Express is a very wrong. That is very far from the truth. There are many many viruses out there that could care less what type of email program you are using. The only way you can protect yourself against viruses is to run a reliable anti virus software and keep it updated. In addition people should learn the safe way to handle attachments. Those two things combined will protect you from MOST viruses but not all. You are entitled to your opinion of course, but it is very unfair to bash Microsoft and blame them for all the virus problems. Outlook (have to purchase) and Outlook Express (free) are both high quality email programs. I have personally compared both of them against all the programs you mention below in addition to many others that you did not mention. I have found none of them able to do all the things that Outlook Express is capable of. Outlooks calendaring, task and contact management features add a dimension that no other email software can touch. That's my opinion. I have been working with computers for over 22 years now. I have been on the Internet before the WWW was even thought of when navigation was via a Unix command prompt. I've used Microsoft's email when it was Internet Mail and News up to version 3 followed by OE4,5 and 6 along with Outlook98, 2000 and 2002. I have NEVER gotten a virus on my PC. With those qualifications, I urge all users on this list to do as they see fit, but do not dump Outlook or Outlook Express based on one person's opinion.

It's a virus magnet. There are several good free email clients for windows - Pegasus ( http://www.pmail.com/ ), Foxmail ( http://fox.foxmail.com.cn/english.htm), and my fave the adware Eudora ( http://www.eudora.com/ ). Not only are any of these easier to use, but simply by not using Outlook (for email) you automatically protect yourself against 95% of the latest viruses. The sooner you take the effort to switch the easier it will be. - Users can unsubscribe from this list by sending email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1/24hrsupport.htm.
