Hey there! There isn't a way to filter attachment extensions through the global filters, so you would likely need to create a custom filter for that user. There are details on how to perform that work outlined here:

but as with any customization, our support is a bit limited.

The new documentation site is here, for your reference: How to Customize the Exim System Filter File | cPanel & WHM Documentation

If you'd like to see this added directly to the cPanel interface, it would be a good idea to submit a feature request to our developers so they can consider this option. You can do that using the link in my signature.

I don't fully understand the question.
Are you trying to send or recieve an .exe file ?

Out of the box, doesn't exim block .exe extensions by default.
I thought it was all but impossible to send an exe by email these days.
