If they send mail attachments in pieces, then there is no way to virus scan
At the moment the "Virus Scanning = yes" switch covers all the content
scanning, i.e. the virus scanning, the attachment filename scanning and the
other content checks.
It's a bit late for me to rename "Virus Scanning", so I'm not sure what I
could call the 3 or 4 options that would be needed to cover all these cases.
