I agree with Paul on this one.  All email programs are vulnerable to viruses.  It's how you set it up, that's important!

Viruses aren't just prone to Outlook.  If you're a Eudora user a virus can
take addresses from mail in your inbox, outbox or even locally cached web
pages.

If your virus definitions are up-to-date you don't have to worry about this
on both ends. 

By default Outlook blocks certain extensions like .exe.  From a users
perspective Outlook is easier to use and has more features to offer.

We have a mixture of e-mail client software; Eudora, Outlook, and Pegasus.

I have to say Outlook is the better product, but this is just an opinion and
everyone has one.

Outlook =VIRUS.

We run our own mail server which hosts our k12 addresses, we are using
a product called SLmail on a NT 4.0 box.

We use Eudora Lite for POP access, it is free....
