I have a stupid question. Why would you want the mail after getting a virus 
attached to it in the first place?  More than likely, the message is bogus or 
like  this 
other virus, it will scan a msg in the host computer, snip some of the message, 
and send it, just to make it "appear" to be legit!  I would prefer the 
software to not only delete the attachment, but the message as well!
