[GEEK] Is it possible to filter out specific attachment extensions in Outlook?

I have just started receiving a slew of spam e-mails with .zip extensions. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to filter out just that extension. I know how to set up filters, but there doesn't seem to be an option for attachments with specific extensions. I have not unzipped ANY of the files and I try to delete the e-mails without even reading them because I can always tell which ones are spam.

Does anybody have any ideas for me (other than to not use outlook)?

Not sure but I'll be paying attention to this thread...

I use my yahoo for all internet stuff so to avoid this problem... Yahoo has a great spam filter!

Its pretty simple Cap

Create new rule. Use a creating a new rule, choosing the option to "Start from a blank rule" and checking messages when they arrive. Then add what ever extension you want with a DOT....Let me know if you need anything else.
