        Please see reply that I wrote to Mariano Absatz. As I already started to write such function set, I experienced enough speed for interception -> attach_name_scan -> send_to_client.
        The only bad delay is for virus scan, because scanner (clamav here) take some seconds to decide whether is or not virus.

        Thank you
