From the subject of your message, it seems you are implying that in Outlook previewing a message is equivalent to actually opening it. Is this definitely the case? (We don't have many Outlook email users, so I don't work with Outlook email much.) I'm also wondering why you didn't mention the preview pane in other programs, such as Outlook Express. Eudora's preview pane (as well as its regular viewer) is safe from this threat, as long as you disallow executables in HTML content.
