What about encrypted zip files? Presumably someone smart enough to open
that is smart enough to check it for viruses.

For a good scanner, check out the Procmail Sanitizer:

Questions like this come up on the Sanitizer mailing list regularly.

Also, the notion of blocking based solely on a list of extensions is a bit
more complicated than it might seem.
