Block unsafe attachments in Outlook 2000

By Choppit ·
Is there a method to prevent users from sending/receiving potentially unsafe attachments such as .exe, .bat, .vbs without applying SR2.

Although SR2 will do this, it also blocks mailing of desktop shortcuts which is a functionality I would like to retain.

All clients are running Office 2000 and the mail server is Exchange 5.0

It is not built into exchange, as far as I know. I ended up deploying either trend scanmail for exchange or (GFI's mail essentials or mail security) I've never worked on exchange 5.0, but it works great on 5.5 and 2000.

What we have done is apply sr2 and then apply a reg hack to allow the attachments we approve of in outlook.

A simpler way of doing this is at the exchange level. we have our antivirus block those attachments automatically.
