i didn't know IE also displays e-mails and power point files.

It doesn't. But the IE rendering engine (read: dlls) are used by most MS
programs to render HTML, which can be embedded into almost any document
type. Pretty much any IE exploit will work in any of these programs as
well. Isn't the whole "integrated Microsoft suite" a wonderful concept?
