Question Firewall stopping VBS emails

Apparently cause of the newest virus my company no longer allows the transfer or receipt of any email with the VBX extension. If you want to send or receive a needed file you must have it sent to the support people first then they will route it to you. All these viruses are getting old. At least they don't stop me from using the PC to read this board all day and night.

I am not an MS Exchange expert, but I am surprised that there is seemingly no way to prevent the server from handling .vbs attachments; or at least people aren't doing it if it is possible. There are really very few practical reasons you would want regular users passing .vbs to each other anyway.

There are probably well administered Exchange deployments which have administrators who are scoffing at all these headlines.

I'm running Exchange 5.0 and have found that the easiest way is to use Norton Anti-Virus for Exchange... It's rather like a plug in for Exchange - you administer it through a browser on port 80.. Updates with your other Norton products..

Oh yeah - I adminster around 500 mailboxes, and have only had one instance of these .vbs virii hit the desktop - from somebody who uses a different mail server - so yeah, properly set up - your sever can stop them..
