Several days? I make it about 29 1/2 hours.

Do you use an anti-virus program with an email scanner? Outlook allows you to create rules to block emails using a number of parameters such as blocking senders, blocking subject lines, blocking attachments etc.

yea i use mcafee email scanner and i use rules inside of outlook.

1> Email scanner doesnt prevent users from downloading these attachments
2> Outlook lets you block attachments but this isnt efficient b/c some emails that come in need to have attachments.

I dont know i will think of something

You can use a preprocessing server that will strip the attachments based on a certain filter.

If you know how to program this perl module may help:
