Exchange does not include any way to block attachments. Neither will a local virus scanner.

You will need a third-party product like Mail Essentials. McAfee may have an Anti-Virus tool for Exchange that will do this.

Some firewalls can also be configured to block attachments before they even get to your mail server.

If you use outlook you can install the outlook security update.

Use Norton Antivirus for Exchange version 2.1 or better.  It will block the attchments by editing the registry.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Hi veejay,

Here you go buy this software which is  scanning real time incoming and out going mails incuding attachments for the virus and clean as well. This product is server product and works on the server only like exchange.

I am using this software on my Exchange-5.5 SP3 and have approximate 700 users on the server......
hope this will help you
