    I know, who uses animated cursors anymore, but I was intrigued that nothing
    of this was posted here yet.

    ......."The SANS Institute's testing, however, contradicted Microsoft; by
    SANS' account, Outlook Express in Windows XP, Windows Mail in Vista, and
    Outlook 2003 in any version of Windows puts users at risk when they simply
    preview a malicious message. They don't have to actually open the message
    to be in danger of an infection."

    I thought MS fixed the message previewing issue. Guess not. But I don't
    (and never did) use MS products for e-mail.
