    i have received a large amount of mails with an attachment loke goldfish.scr ect.
    What is the best way to set the email block to stop receiving mails with attachments *.scr ?
    I have read the docs about this but it all refers to tjhe actual body, as far as I can see it.

    Please help, since getting about 250 mails per day is getting real annoying

    Install Mailscanner and get yourself a decent virus program to detect those viruses. We catch over 200 viruses a day.

    OK, thanks, I will ask my host to do that.
    In the meantime, since I am not sure how long it will take my host to set this up, can I use the "block an email" for stopping it for now?

    If your a end user, wouldn't it be a better suggestion to get your own virus scanner.... just a thought...

    I use Kaspersky Anti Virus at home. I really like that one. Think I can implement that one into my mailserver? Or would my host have to do that too ?

    please note that I do not have any experience with server issues nor do I have any tech knowledge. I just make websites ;-)
