To my knowledge you can not. What we do is run a mail gateway that is designed to prevent this. You can also run a virus scanner on exchange that will stop some of those attachments.

We actually do both. Our gateway blocks a majority of the spam we receive and blocks attachment types that are on a list.

Good Luck!

I use mcafee groupshield for exchange this allows attachment specific blocking.

We use Etrust from CA, Apart from being a very good viru scanenr for exchange, it also removes files by extention, so I have all the main virus carrier types (.pif .vbs .exe .com etc) blocked, this is a pre-scan block so even genuine files are removed.
