[rescue] (Offtopic) X-Message-Flag fun for Outlook users

Isn't the real issue that `Outlook` automagically processes things  
which come from unconfirmed sources?

If an Outlook user were to turn off all such processing, they would  
then have access to the raw email, as email was originally designed.  
They could then choose to open an attachment or not ... there by  
stopping more than 95% of the email viruses.

No one should blindly open any MS word, excel, powerpoint or other  
non text document ... MS allows macros to be embedded in those  
formats ... would you want code to be executed without confirmation  
of the source? I hope not.
