You cannot block attachments through the Global Settings, you need a
third-party product, most anti-virus packages for Exchange have the option
to block attachments (what AV software are you running?)

Hi Venu,

Thanks!  Any more specific details, i.e. exactly what steps need to be done?
Delete the extensions from the listed MIME types?  Or add a "New"
type?  Or other?

Also, I have many independent domains on one Ex2k3 server (service provider
situation) and I need to be able to do this on a per-domain basis, e.g. one
client says "don't allow any .vbs attachments to come to me" and others say
"don't delete my .vbs attachments!".

Best regards
Mike Salim
