I have a security question that has come up as a sort of internal
debate.   Archive files (.zip) specifically.  Do you allow them thru the
firewall in email attachments?  Some of my peers feel they should be
blocked as they can be autoexecuted.  I'm not sure, I didn't think they
could be but we need to be safe these days.  Currently we block .pif,
.scr, .exe, .bat, .vb*, .com    anyone think of any others.
