not that I know of... but if you can get rid of Windows on the desktop
then that pretty much solves the problem too :-)

I just ditch all the virus traffic on the client in the same way that I
do the spam. You could always set up procmail on the server to filter
messages with attachments based on size (or other rules) I suppose, but
maintaining it might be a chore, and it still doesn't solve the problem
if people are sending you binaries that are legitimate but *might* be
