I've looked at answers to similar questions on EE and I suspect the anwer is going to be something 3rd Party, but can anyone recommend a good solution to the problem of wanting to block the sending and receivng of certain attachments?

We have a problem with people sending (large) video files in emails and the solution would be to just block these if possible. Are there any good products that can bolt on to Exch 2003 that can handle this?

says you cannot do it, but SBS does let you do it, and there is also defaul files that are blocked. see http://www.email.ku.edu/faqs/extensions.shtml so i guess there is a way to customise it.
