Hi Chris,

Nothing you do can stop it hitting your exchange box, except if you are
using a delivery gateway. A delivery gateway might be something like a
viruswall or ISA box. Depending on what (if any) this gateway is there
may be options to stop/remove the virus there.

If your exchange box is external facing (ie. receives directly from the
net) you can't stop some mail from being delivered to exchange. If
you're worried about it you could investigate putting a server-side rule
in the users inbox to auto-delete an infected message.

Subject: [exchangelist] SoBig.F virus...

Hi All

I have a user who's constantly getting emails from the outside world
that apparently contains the SoBig.F virus. Although other users have
gotten those emails, it's not as constant as this one particular user.
So far today that user has gotten over 250 emails from different people
w/ what appears to be legitimate email accounts. Is there anyway to
prevent those emails from hitting our Exchange 2000 box other than
deleting his email account?
