I agree with blocking attachments.

The sad fact is that if you just ban a user email address that sent a 
virus to the mailing list, you may be banning an innocent person!

I have been seeing a LOT of 'virus removal' messages directed towards 
my email address, saying that I sent an infected email to a person I 
never even heard of. The sad fact is, many of these Outlook based 
viruses forge the sender address using other addresses on the infected 
computer.  I have never used Outlook - all my email is read on either 
Linux or Mac OS X. I don't even use Windows based email clients - maybe 
Mozilla once in a blue moon....  those infected emails came from 
someone who may have once received mail from me, who DOES run a virus 
engine such as Outlook.....
