1.) Issue a company-wide policy, that ALL outgoing email traffic has to be
PDF or plain-text only.

2.) Enforce this by blocking all other attachements on outgoing traffic,
this is dependent on your MTA.

3.) Use something like

if you don't want to provide all your users with a full Adobe Acrobat.
