None, we only protect those customers who additionally pay for our antivirus 
services. 

These services comprise of systems which decode the mime, unzip, untar, unarc
(etc) and then run any files thro commercial virus checker engines which are 
updated automatically daily or manually in the case of a new emerging threat 
that cant wait.

We dont filter by file type.. people do send exe's legitimately!
