We use scanmail from Trend Micro.  The user just gets a notificaton
letting them know the email contained a virus and so it was blocked.

        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....)

Infected E-mail

                Hi does anyone use an antivirus program. That
automatically returns and
                infected E-mail to the sender, and stops it appearing in
the users inbox.
                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 their
                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 that
                a virus infect E-mail from "smith@xxxxxxxxxxxx" was
                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 upgrade
