    I'm glad someone else felt this way.  Outlook is not the primary email
    program here at Northwestern, Eudora is, and we still had our share of
    infections.  Personally I don't think banning Outlook will solve their
    problem.  Perhaps they might consider banning Windows instead?  ;-)
    Personally, I think a campaign to get people to keep their anti-viral
    software and patches up to date, coupled with a program of education
    on safe computing would pay off.  Not only would this benefit the
    college, but, the students would benefit from learning a skill that
    they will be able to use in the future.
