Recently we have noticed a large increase in the amount of virus filed .zip files our email users have recieved. We do not want to block all attachments, but just individual ones based on the names of the files I.E: bill.zip, bills2.zip, attachment.zip, doc.zip etc... How can I configure our Symantec Mail Security 5.0 to block these specific attachments when they come through?


Thanks,
Murphyins.
