Internet Explorer and Outlook work very well together, with little or no
thought or human intervention needed. This is why so many of the most
potent viruses recently take advantage of the vulnerability of this
combination. The IE5 and Outlook combination are standard issue at work,
and sometimes we have been down for days while IT tries to clean out our
infected systems. At home I use IE5, but highly restricted, and don't use
Outlook (which I consider overkill for a mail system). I also have a
firewall and virus scanner software running.
