Whats your exchange sever version (exchange 2007 or 2003)?
to do what you want i think you are going to need something like a gateway spam scanner such as GFI mail security etc that will check the actual content of an email . as far as i know there is no such functionality within exchange.

i restrict users who abuse email by doing as i said above - simply restricting the size of the email they can send as 1kb is enough for text emails but holds almost no capabilities for image sending
tho if you use 2007 exchange i guess an edge server could also do this
