In some messages that we are auditing, there is a few that include an URL pointing to a site that contains a malware, and this URL isn't listed in any Symantec filter, due to short time between email disclosure and admin action trying to block the sender.

If we have a option to remove any URL inside the email, or, send this kind email to quarantine queue, we will increasing the messaging security.

A simple work-around for these instances is to configure a custom complaince rule that triggers on all, or a portion of the offending URL.

This allows you to take an action you deem appropriate, in a timely manner. Email with links to offensive sites are seldom legitimate email messages, so quarantining or deleting the messages is more apporpriate than modifying the message and delivering.
