Lots of places let zip files through, which is why you're seeing
more zip attachments.  Some places do a virus scan on zipped
attachments, which is why you're seeing files zipped with a password
included in the text of the message.

Our IT department recently sent out an email that due to virus concerns,
files with certain extensions were being blocked and that if you
needed to email such a file to someone, you should simply change the
extension to .txt.
