Can spamfilter be set to block certain attachments? I wanted to block *.pif and tried that as a keyword but it did not work, anyone else have any ideas?

Kevin,

Attachment blocking is on our wishlist. It's not possible to block them right now, but we'll be adding that feature soon.

Well the sooner the better, it sure would be nice to filter out some of these virus' that are spreading around so that my virus software doesn't even have to deal with them.

You got that right, I'm getting hit with thousands of these viruses, but trying to filter the subject line by keywords and it's not working

I'm in the same boat, my virus software is working perfectly, I just don't want to even have these messages come into my system! For the simple fact that my virus software won't block the entire message so some of my users are getting 50+ messages that a virus came through from someone they don't know....which is basically...SPAM!

Not yet, we will 1st be releasing the new version which will filter based on statistical dna fingerprinting. When that is done, we'll be adding the extra features on the wishlist.
