        To be honest, I like Outlook. I know it's virus friendly, but quite frankly if my Windows box gets a vi

  • Be sure to schedule plenty of time for installing patches and cleaning up virus fallout.
  • I get all my email on my sparc and never go to meetings anymore :) It works so well that I seem to be unable to get laid off and they just keep sending me bonuses.
