    Howdy,

    I recently have had a major problem on our mail servers with the flooding of spam, which annoyed quite a few customers. so after some research I found some forum posts which have a way of reducing the spam.

    Here is the quick walk-through:

    ==================================================
    Filtering extentions:

    1. Login to webmail using your admin account
    2. Head to SETTINGS and DOMAIN CONTENT FILTERING
    3. Click Add Filter
    4. Expand Attachments and check Specific extensions
    5. Click Next
    6. For Filter Type select OR
    7. Paste the list of extensions below into the Attachments box:

    bat
    cmd
    com
    cpl
    exe
    js
    jse
    msc
    msi
    msp
    pif
    reg
    vbs
    scr
    shb
    shs
    vbs
    wsc
    wsf
    wsh

    8. Click Next
    9. Enter a Rule Name (I use "Possible Virus")
    10. Check On Move message to Junk E-mail folder (if desired)
    11. Click the Save button
