Description (partial)

After AV repairs malicious attachments, it adds "Removed Attachment.txt" to the email which has the below details and delivers the E-Mail to the end-user.
					"This attachment contained a virus and was stripped.
					Virus(es): "

Is there a way, where we could give an option to the E-Mail admin to configure ESA to not include "Removed Attachment.txt" for the repaired email so the end-users will not be aware of what happened in the backend?

1. When email is scanned by AV and found to contain a malicious attachment, the attachment is removed by AV
2. After removing the attachment it adds a .txt file as an attachment to notify it removed the original malicious attachment
3. We could not strip the .txt attachment using a content filter as well.
