[Dshield] Using collaboration portals to defeat mal-mail

A while back during one of the recent outbreaks of mail-borne malware, someone suggested using collaboration portals to transfer files to people and just dropping all possibly malicious attachments at the gateway.
I'm interested in this approach.  Has anyone implemented it or something like it?  Got any lessons learned (especially CBA if you did it, but any and all tidbits would be welcome)?  Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
