Blocked Virus Files

I have my MailScanner set to allow these only if they're in a ZIP file. 
That way it's a lot more effort for a user to "accidently" execute them. 
But if someone really needs to send these, they can.
I know that's not 100% secure, but I have to allow my users to receive 
them in one form or another and using a ZIP file was the least risky I 
could think of and still let them exchange these kind of files.
