Hi,

I am looking at updating our email security in regards to blocking
attachments. So I am looking for a good recommendation of email
attachments/extension to block. Some of the basic blocks consist of Bat,
Cmd, Exe, Pif, Scr, Vbs, .Shs some of the blocks on the bubble are .Lnk
and .Url. 

Other extension like .doc and .zip are a business requirement, so for
now we will allow then but we will scan for virus. 

Your thoughts and inputs are greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

Paulo
