QMail and blocking specific extensions

I wass wondering if there is a 'simple way' to block specific extensions as attachments within a email.
I've tried qmail-qfilter but it seems that it doesn't block anything.
If anyone has a good howto I realy be gratefull if they can send it to me.

Thnx in advance

you've probally figured it out by now, but anyone else who happens to want to know the same thing, i use Qmail-Scanner. Its great for blocking extensions, or messages in emails and also to run your favorite commercial Virus Scanner from so that infected email's never reach your vunerable machine.
