There are gateway scanning products that you can use.  Your AV vendor
may offer one.  The other thing could be to delete all emails w/ certain
attachments (don't quarantine).   We delete all attachments (and the
email itself) for anything coming in for exe,com,bat,pif,scr,vbs.  It
cuts down on the work the av products spends scanning.  Your AV program
on exchange should allow you to do attachment blocking.  If it doesn't
I'd suggest investing in something more current.

Subject: [exchangelist] Thousands of emails

Hello to all, 

I am sure most of you have experience the SOBig.F viurs by now.  I
received almost  1000 attachments for the last two days.  Fortunately
the server is blocking them all. Exchange 5.5 with SP4.

Is there a way to somehow block those emails to even get to my server?
Am I just dreaming? 

Thanks in advance.
