Exchange 2003 SBS Attachment filtering in admin


I have set up SBS 2003 / Exchange on our server some time ago.  I have been 
trying to find the location to add an additional attachment to the exclude 
list on incoming mail.  (Attachment filtering).  I have looked for some time 
and cannot find the UI to do this in the system manager.

Could someone point this location out to me?

I was also wondering how to do this and found it. See below. I think MS 
should put this somewhere in the message filter settings...

On SBS 2003 Server, the user has the option to specify various file
attachment extensions that will be blocked by running CEICW. The list of
blocked attachments will be maintained in an XML file named
SecAttsConfig.xml, and stored in the SBS  networking directory.

How do we manually allow the attachments which we know are safe go through
the SBS Server? Please perform the below steps:

1.  Open Start, click Run, type %sbsprogramdir%\Networking in the Open box,
and then press ENTER.

2.  In the dialog box, find the SecAttsConfig.xml file, right-click the
file and select Edit.

3.  If you would like to enable the "Save removed e-mail attachments in a
folder" option and specify a folder to save these attachments. Find the
<SaveToFile Enabled="False" Location="" /> sentence, change it to
<SaveToFile Enabled="True" Location="Destination path" />.
For example, we can type c:\attachments at the Destination path.

4.  If you would like to block the .mdb attachment, find the <Attachment
Enabled="True"  Extension="mdb" Description="Microsoft Access program" />
sentence, change it to <Attachment Enabled="False" Extension="mdb"
Description="Microsoft Access program" />.

5.  Click File in the menu, and then click Save to save the change to the
SecAttsConfig.xml file.

Excel 2003 not understanding Access 2003 "like"

These statements seem to be completely ignored by Excel so that records I should see are not appearing in the workbook.

How many actual users in Exchange 2003?

Exchange RPC over HTTP without a seperate Outlook profile?

I have two users with laptops who work from home regularly, and I am looking at RPC over HTTP for them. My question is this: Given the situation, would it make sense to just set those two up with RPC over HTTP as the only way they talk to Exchange, even when connected to the local network? Is there a good reason to add the complexity of multiple profiles in this case? I would like to keep things as simple as possible for these users, while not creating other problems...

Functionality lost by using exchange
Our institution recently changed from provider based internet mail (pop3) to letting external mail arrive directly to our exchange 2003 server. The following problem shows up: in the old scenario, groups had 2 mailboxes: one for the group (G) and a private mailbox for the manager (M), each with their own e-mail address. I emulated this by creating a mbx-enabled user G, that is only used for the mailbox, not for login. I gave all group members including M access to that mailbox. But what happens? 1. If a group member sends a mail, the return address is the address of the sender; it should b...
