i think the best way is to deny .exe, .zip, .rar, etc. files.
do this by using

acl httpxs urlpath_regex \.zip$ \.rar$ \.exe$

http_access deny httpxs

another suggestion is to find out where attachments get downloaded from on
webmail - and then ban that url_path.

im guessing that attachments ("attach") may be in the url
