Table: Fallout from the Fear of Anthrax

THE WINNERS

-- UPS (UPS ), FedEx (FDX ), and other private carriers that track pickups and deliveries

-- Private outfits such as Pitney Bowes (PBI ) that run company mailrooms, as well as security companies selling X-ray machines and testing equipment

-- E-payment services should benefit from the public's growing desire to pay bills electronically

THE LOSERS

-- Catalog retailers, if consumers continue to avoid mail-order shopping

-- Credit-card issuers and other direct marketers could get slammed if consumers toss out solicitations

-- The U.S. Postal Service, which could see its projected $1.7 billion deficit soar to as much as $5 billion in fiscal 2002
