Yuck.  (though fixing it in M$-Exchange does sort of make some weird
kind of M$ sense, assuming Outlook users always use Exchange....)

How common is this bug in Outlook?  Is it just plain stupid about what
it uses to form the ID, or is there some sort of relationship to the
host configuration, etc.?  (e.g. is it just because many client hosts
end up with the same hostname?)

How about Outlook Express?  Does it suffer this same bug?

(of my big Cyrus users, most of their customers are likely to use OE)

(why do people who pay real $$$ for their software not demand real fixes!?!?!?)
