I guess what I was looking for was what other types people routinely 
block.  I'm not up on he world of viruses, and I don't care to be.  I 
have never accidently been infected with a virus (intentionally, yes, 
accidently, no) and I don't use Winblows machines for email much anyway.

I know about the audio types because someone in my family was infected 
with klez and started spamming the entire family...

currently I have application/octet-stream and audio blocked.  I don't 
even know what some of those application/ subtypes are (andrew-insert?  
Cybercash? dec-dx?  iges?)
