Script to download entire message from header in entourage

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a script that will automatically start downloading large messages when they arrive in the entourage inbox?

I receive emails that have huge attachments so I need to setup entourage to only received the headers of large messages otherwise I will have many emails queued up on the server behind the large email as it is downloading. Everything works fine but I basically need to download all the emails and attachments eventually anyway, so I have to always manually click on the option to get the rest of the message for all emails.

The optimum scenario for me would be to keep headers on, but create a script that would be activated by a rule and automatically start downloading all messages after the headers are downloaded. This would enable me to see all emails and work on them while the large ones are downloading the attachments in the background.

Any ideas?
