Yes, but pointless - either just drop the attachment, or drop the whole message with action_discard.  Don't bounce it - back scatter is more likely to get you blacklisted than just about anything else short of mega-spamming, as the sender is likely to have been spoofed or is not a valid address.

in case of a virus I'd like to refuse with a "554 5.7.1" and send a
warning email to the recipiet with "action_drop_with_warning". A
mixture of "action_bounce" and "action_drop_with_warning". Is that
