Scanning outgoing mails for spam and viruses

Hello all,

I am trying to find a way to check outgoing mail for spam and viruses
prior to sending them, and wonder if this is possible with MailScanner?

I am using Squirrelmail as a web based interface for mail, so the
messages are generated on the server. Squirrelmail sends the outgoing
messages by SMTP, however only messages sent to another account on the
server gets scanned.

Is it any way to have procmail or similar filter the outgoing messages,
and quarantine infected or suspect messages?
