I am fairly new to the Exchange 2003 world having only installed it in small environments. I wanted to ask about how to block attachments. Is this configured at the Exchange level, anti-virus, or a 3rd party filter ?

Exchange 2003 does not block attachments by default, usually you would wish to use either a spam filter or a virus scanner that can block anything you configure it to.

GFI has a nice spam filter and virus scanner, both have freeware versions that you loose slight functionality, not full functionality
www.gfi.com
Mail Security is a virus scan utility
Mail Essentials is a spam blocker

MailFrontier makes the best spam blocking utility I've seen
www.mailfrontier.com
they have exchange and client side utils

These are older Experts-exchange PAQ's that were answered (same question you ask now)
