As a quick and dirty option, you can use procmail to filter. Depending on
your security posture and thread environment, you can filter on
multi-extension vbs files (e.g. AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs), all VBS files, exe
files, or any combination. You could filter them to a quarantine area, then
peruse them at your leisure.

You should combine this with turning off auto execute of attachments on all
of your windows boxen.

Those who trade liberty for security have neither.
