Is there any way that I can let a panels user have access to Outlook Express to check email, but keep them from having access to IE? If I have OE available, but IE not available in the list of available applications, one can still launch IE by simply clicking on a URl! Would any other email client eliminate this problem? Anyone know of a fix?

I haven't experimented with the Panels setup, but if you are looking for a way to stop IE from launching because someone has clicked a link I have some ideas:
- in Internet control panel, set the default web browser to OE or another application (eg: Stuffit Expander or simple text)
- You can switch back to claris emailer, it does not support HTML links (but I still use it untill today).
- One last thing, are you sure that in Multiple Users panel / Applications Internet Explorer is not checked ?
Once you put your hand in the flame you can never be the same, there's a certain satisfaction in a little bit of pain.
