There is no option to hold messages which have had parts removed by
content filtering.

The only thing you might be able to do without hacking the code is to
adjust max_message_size to hold messages with "large" attachments and
not those without, but this would obviously not be very reliable.

There's no option for this either.

filter_action only applies if there is nothing left after content
