Until you figure out the exact solution to the problem, please do
consider implementing a firewall, logically in-front of your Exchange
server to block malicious and virus prone attachments, and even better
- viruses - before they reach your Exchange server.

Personally, I have had positive experience with Fortinet's Fortigate
anti-virus firewalls. For a fraction of the prices of a Cisco PIX for
example, you get all of the same features and much more.

There are also systems that can be implemented with half-a-day of your
time to start out and around $100 invested into hardware. Obviously
there are better systems, though.

Feel free to email off-list if you want to explore these systems further.
