delete messages based on the attachment name

Posted on 2004-10-27
Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I am attempting to remove all messages containing a virus automatically received with Outlook Express or Outlook (that is the
message does not appear in the inbox but is simply deleted). The problem is that AV Software such as Norton or Mcafee, do not allow the removal of messages containing viruses, but are delivered with a text attachment indicating that the virus has been removed.
Inbox rules do not allow message management based on the attachemnt name or content.
Is there a solution?

Thank you in advance
