A recent version of the Trend antivirus program (details not available)
causes problems in the Windows Mail program that comes with Vista.
However, you'll have to wait for someone else to tell you if it also causes
problems in Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express. Problems in email
caused by antivirus programs are often slow to appear, often only
after the antivirus program decides to block a message due to a virus.
