I haven't actually been able to get it working, but I've read that by using MS 
ISA server as a firewall you can impose SMTP filters that can actually drop 
incoming emails depending on the file attachment extension or actual file name 
(ie: .exe, .bat, .vbs, .pif,, etc....)

        Hi does anyone use an antivirus program. That automatically returns and
        infected E-mail to the sender, and stops it appearing in the users 
        Our current antivirus solution "CA E-trust" just removes the infected
        attachment, so the body of the E-mail appears in the user's inbox.
        Consequently we have users with hundreds of So-Big Emails cluttering 
        inboxes. A preferred solution would be the users never see the infected
        E-mail at all, only the sender gets a notification. The other acceptable
        solution would be, the user just gets a notification from the AV agent 
        a virus infect E-mail from "smith@xxxxxxxxxxxx" was blocked.
        For this solution to be useful to me if would have to work with 
exchange 5.5
        which we are currently running and Exchange 2003 which we intend to
