    It seems ever since I've been using Outlook Express on my work's computer... viruses collect quite often. However, on my other computer, where I don't use Outlook Express... there's never a problem.

    No, not necessarily. It depends on how everything is setup.

    Lotus could be just as vulnerable..

    It isn't that Microsoft products all around are that much less secure (especially with their new products). It is just that a LOT more people are spending a LOT more time trying to hack them. When you use the most popular software, unfortunately, that is the result. It becomes a target for every script kiddie and moron.
