Hmm. Not sure about that Charles...

* The router firewall won't stop virus/trojan/worm laden email.
* Norton/AVG are only as good as their current definitions.
* And what about the worm that doesn't need an attachment, but executes
from a script in the html of the email?

I too have a router/firewall, AV software, etc - but it's Outlook itself
that stops 90% of bad stuff...

Regards

Not really! It might lok like it on the surface, but I'm confident with
Outpost, Norton, AVG, the built in firewall in the router and a whole
lot of
common sense, (like not opening attachments from someone I don't know,
staying away from lists that aren't plain text only (at least keep a
VERY
close eye on them) and so forth...) will keep most nasties away. If they
do
make it, they usually are caught before they can even think about doing
their dirty deeds. (done dirt cheap)  <g>
