We quarantine them, then release if they are OK.
The users don't love it, but they understand it.

Subject: [ExchangeList] file filtering best practice?

In dealing with zip files specifically, I'm wondering what is considered
the "best practice"?  We simply remove the file at our edge proxy, but
have been getting a little flack from a few users.  Our data shows that
nearly 94% of the .zip files that come in via email are infected so I'm
not likely to be convinced to allow them through.

What say you?
