viruses in general don't bother backbone folks? besides, don't use outlook
and you don't get infected?

Why would anyone not trolling for viruses use MS mail products, Chris?
Because they are "forced" or "told" to by their MIS department? Sometimes the blind do lead the blind...and the blind follow (who's leading?) :-)

It's also worth pointing out that MS mail products generally include a lot more functionality than just email. Calendaring and workflow are in high demands. Give MIS departments a better product and they will use it.
