Hi Michael,

you could use MIMEdefang for this purpose, it integrates with
sendmail by using the milter-API avaiable since versions 8.11

It can do what you would like to achieve.

Though modifying Mail clearly violates the RFC ;), using it on a
carefully configured Border-Gateway (such as your internal
SMTP-gateway for outgoing mail) will usually not cause too much
problems. The point there really is that the MTA modifying the
mail should be configured in a way to 1. not interfere with
normal mail delivery processes and because of this needs to be
careful when modifying messages (think of delivery/error
notifications and possible mail-loops/mail-floods when not being
very careful about which mails to modify and what to do in case
of errors).

cu, Tilman
