This is not a microsoft.public group. You've posted to the wrong one.
Seldom do I see an html post (yours being one) here.

I've got news for you, There isn't a single anti virus program that will
catch this Outlook/Outlook Express exploit. Thanks to linux, I've been
able to look at the source and store the message on the machine, and try
the antivirus scanners on them...they don't catch this, nor do they catch
the message when it comes into O/OE. A message like this carrying a virus
will execute when OE opens the mail, like it or not. We've seen a lot of
these type of OE exploits at our company. What has saved our bacon is
that we run an attachment renamer on our Linux sendmail server so that
when OE/Outlook tries to open the mail, it doesn't know how.
