Don't know.  If you try to close a DOS box under Win9x while a program is
running in it, a big "are you *sure* you want to do this?" dialog box pops
up, strongly discouraging you, and recommending that you terminate the
program properly instead.  Most Windows users have enough sense to resort to
this only in an emergency.

They should.

OTOH, most WinNT+ users are probably slinging Outlook and using its addin.
