Mimecast offer a cloud-based secure email gateway which provides instant and automated protection from phishing attacks.

This extends to URLs in archived emails, to prevent against delayed attacks. Finally, Mimecast’s solution sandboxes all attachments before sending them on to the end user. This means that suspicious files are opened, or “detonated”, in an isolated test environment, so that malicious files never reach your system.
