Setting "Use TNEF Contents = replace" in MailScanner.conf should do it.

I've never tried it.  Anybody found any issues doing so?

Subject: MailScanner fix for Exchange TNEF vuln?

This is new today for those using MailScanner in front of Exchange.

Of course not all of us can patch all our Exchange servers within ten
minutes of the bulletin - is there any way to mitigate against the
external threat using MailScanner?
