Nothing is hazardous to install as long as you know exactly what you're doing.

As for "what works like Outlook" -- depends on what features you need. If you just mean e-mail, the Mac Mail application should do. You might want to check out Mozilla's stuff...

I don't really have a comment on the Limewire question, however, I may be of some assistance discussing your email client. If you're looking for a good mail application, your Mac came with one, Mail. Between Mail, iCal and Address Book, you already have most everything Outlook does. And they are integrated quite well!

Suggest you leave Limewire out. Do a Google 'Limewire and Leopard' and see the myriad of problems this software is having with the new cat. As John says use Mail.
