The zip's contents can
be seen without the password, just not unpacked...no cracking it required.

now winrar has a option to encrypt file names with a password, me thinks pkzip with the 64 bit compression also has 
that feature... how are we going to deal with this ? by stopping all the compressed mail at the email gateway ?

we do have one solutions: all the mail headers are spoofed so just stop accepting mail from spoofed host, this should 
solve your spam problem also

You should be blocking executables by policy anyway, yes?

that is always being done by the all the people in this day and age, only now we seem to forget to add the compressed 
file format that are encrypted so that their file contects cannot be seen ?
