1. You *really* shouldn't be getting emails every time someone sends a
request with an unknown method.  That is nuts.

2. How to prevent these requests from getting to Websphere depends on how
websphere is configured to interact with apache.  You haven't provided any
details of this.

3. You can try something like this:
<Location />
SetEnvIf User-Agent "Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing" msdav
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
Deny from env=msdav
