Unix mail server rejecting attachments

Our Unix mail server will automatically reject any mail that contains one of the following email attachments: 

ad[ep] 
ba[st] 
chm 
cmd 
com 
cpl 
crt 
eml 
exe 
hlp 
hta 
in[fs] 
isp 
jse? 
lnk 
md[be] 
ms[cipt] 
pcd 
pif 
reg 
scr 
sct 
shs 
url 
vb[se] 
ws[fhc] 

These are common virus carriers and our systems do not take this risk. If the file you are trying to send is legitimate, then try renaming the file extension to something like .txt or zip it up using winzip.
