This is more complicated than it sounds. Do you mean append to the first
HTML part of multipart mail? Or the first text part? Or both?
Either could be done relatively simply by creating specialized "scanners"
for .txt or .html attachments, which "disinfect" those parts by editing
their contents. I'm not sure exactly how to limit it to one "edit" per
If you want the contents of the message appended to depend on the results
of scannign, then you'd have to run the sanitizer twice, first to scan and
then to append messages (same goes for any subject-line modifications or
other things which people have requested, since the sanitizer processes
messages as a stream it can't backtrack and modify the beginning of the
message based on what it finds further down).
