I have been looking around, and I have found a Third Party patch for this bug

Article about it here

http://www.informationweek.com/news/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=193004 898

Alternatives

If you are using Internet Explorer, switch to another Browser

Personal Suggestion is FireFox

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

And if you are using outlook, (and like me, have hundreds of emails)

You can Make your emails in Plain Text Format

(This bug is Vector Markup Langauge, so you be ok if you use Plain Text)

How to make emails Plain Text

Click Tools on the top

Then Options

On the Preferences Tab

Click E-Mail Options

then tick the box which reads

"Read all Standard mail in plain text"

and the one below that

"Read all digitally signed mail in plain text"

just to be safe

If you want further advice, just post a reply
