Before days of email scripting, creating a self-replicating virus was a large task requiring a very knowledgeable person. He would have to design and create a means whereby virus sent itself to other systems. Once email scripting was invented and became popular, virtually anyone with a few days or weeks of script training (or reading of manuals) could do same.
So if you use Outlook Express, you MUST install a very good virus checking program (such as Norton Antivirus) and you MUST keep definitions up-to-date. Unfortunately, email security patch for Outlook which disables email scripting does not apply to Outlook Express, so is of no help. (I am not sure if scripting problem applies to Outlook Express which ships with Internet Explorer 6 and above as I have not installed that program yet).
To sum it up quickly, Outlook Express is a reasonable email and newsgroup client. The best that can be said about it is product works and it's free. You are, however, exposing yourself to some risk if you use program, especially if you do not have a good antivirus program installed.
