The Office XP (Outlook 2002) Group Policy administrative template from the
resource kit does allow defining allowable attachments. I've not used it,
but it appears that if you enable the setting and define allowable
attachment settings, it will exclude all other attachment extensions.

It might be different for Office XP, but for 2003, you download the
Office ADM's for Group Policy and you can push/enforce all the Office
settings you wish through Active Directory Group Policy. I have mine
setup with a list of allowed attachment extenstions within the Outlook
ADM section of the GPO.
