Answer

Yes.

The action would be set as part of the normal alerts set within GMS Anti-Virus. In the alerts section of GMS Anti-Virus is the ability to set the postmaster email address as well as enabling alerts to be sent to postmaster. Enable this option and if a user tries to attach an infected file to an email using GMS Webmail the alert will be sent to the postmaster and the user can then be contacted and asked where the file came from to prevent further contamination.

GMS Anti-Virus will stop the infected attachment being attached to the message,
and will immediately inform the user of the reason. The additional warning
messages as set above are also sent.
