How to create a custom rule - Forward with attachment

I would like to expand upon the rule wizard that allows me to forward email when the subject line contains "Threshold Alert" to a predefined distribution group. I need to include the legend of the Threshold account codes so the the folks understand what the codes mean. I would prefer to include the legend as a footer to the email. Maybe create a custom signature and have that signature included? I'll settle to include an attachment.

Any ideas how to do this? Can I create a customer VBA rule and modify the body?

My solution was to create a module in VBA that saves the email body to a txt files on the network. In the rules wizard, I use the option "call Scirpt" or something to that effect.  I then have a SP in SQL Server that checks that folder for new files and imports the data into a database. Now I can chew on the data and spit out the perferct report and send to a distribution group.
