I can't suggest a way to achieve what you describe, but I would ask how often
you think this is likely to happen at all?

In other words, how often do you see emails containing a virus, plus
something else which is worth sending on to the recipient after cleaning out
the virus?

I think it is so infrequent that you may as well ignore it and simply send on
nothing to the recipient when a virus is detected.

but rather when there is nothing left to take away.
