    Outlook from Office 2003 = targeted by every email borne virus = security risk.

    MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD is great, although it won't access hotmail. Probably be a good idea to ditch hotmail anyway. Check out fastmail for a good free email service.

    I've been using Outlook from Office 2003 Professional for quite a while now and have never had any viruses come through my Email, or even any spam email or advertisements
    I guess it depends on who you give your address too, just don't sign up for mailing lists and such

    Wrong.
    Not every email-borne virus is targeted at Outlook or OE, only those that exploit security inadequacies in it; in almost every case these viruses can be avoided by simply changing security settings. Outlook 2003 is much safer than 2000 and also by default doesn't display web-based graphics in emails as a spam prevention measure.
    In fact, of the clients I've tried, I'd recommend Outlook 2003 for those that want hotmail/msn.com functionality, although I haven't tried Foxmail but hear it's very good.
