Making a copy of the original mail is trivial with procmail (or even tee, if
you are brave), and the newest version of the sanitizer (1.16) is able to
remove suspicious looking attachments from the mail it processes.

So a two-stage procmail ruleset, almost identical to the one I suggested in
the README file will do this for you if you define the right policies for
the sanitizer. I'm not sure how easy it is to use procmail with qmail

Let me know how it works out! :-)
