Attachment Question

An  internal user sent an email message that contained a number of
attachments (.pdf, .txt, and .zip). The .zip file had a javascript (.js)
file, so the mail scanner quarantined the .zip file which is OK. However,
the recepient did not get the remaining attachments, even the ones that
passed the scanning. Is it possible to configure the mail scanner to allow
delivery of rest of the attached files and quarantine only the ones that
have a problem?  On a different note, is it possible to quarantine a (.pif
or .scr or .js) file contained in a .zip file and allow delivery of the rest
of the files contained in the same .zip file.  

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,
