What makes MS products so wonderful is they include much more functionality than many other products. What makes MS products so horrible is that the add functionality by making users' systems vulnerable to security threats under the guise of helpfulness (e.g., VB scripting, auto preview in Outlook). We too saw a large surge in e-mail bounces hitting our site. Our IronPort e-mail gateways are configured to drop viruses laden and undeliverable messages rather than bounce them to the victimized "from" sender. Why Fortune-500 e-mail administrators cannot figure out this one is confounding. How about a nice article in WSJ, Fortune, or Forbes which lists the companies with misconfigured systems so investors are informed as to the IT infrastructure of their investments?
