    Bug in Outlook Express for Mac

    Microsoft today acknowledged a problem with its Outlook Express email
    application for the Macintosh platform that threatens to erase incoming
    mail before it is read. 
    The problem, which affects people using Outlook Express 4.01 for
    Macintosh, occurs when users set up filters for incoming mail to go to a
    folder other than the in-box. If the computer's hard disk is near
    capacity, the incoming mail may vanish. 
    Microsoft characterized the problem as "rare," but urged Macintosh users
    to fix it by downloading an upgrade, Mac Outlook Express 4.02. That
    upgrade also will include a fix to the "buffer overrun" or "long file
    name" security bug, which affects Outlook Express and other email
    Microsoft will post the update to its Outlook Express Macintosh Edition
    site this afternoon.
