That depends largely on what exactly you mean by "mention" (and
to some extend on what you mean by "block".)

Do you want to block any mail containing the string ".exe"
anywhere in its text? (Not a good idea IMHO, it would for
example block both your question and my answer.)
Do you want to block any mail containing an actual attachment
with a file name ending on ".exe"?
Do you want to block any mail containing an URL for downloading
an .exe?
Do you want to explicitly reject the blocked mail when it's
coming in?
Do you want to silently delete it?
Do you want to put it into some sort of quarantine?
Do you want to pass it on but remove the ".exe mention"?
