Why bother to forward those messages to your mail server at all?
The same base64 string you are using in postfix's body_checks
will surely serve in your .procmailrc in master.

Thanks to base64, I never forward any windows virus to myself, they
are kept in my ~/mail directory. See my ~/pmrc/executables in master
for generic anti windows-executable recipes.
