[Hmmmm.  Interesting concept, but unlikely.  
(Maybe if you were clearer about the 
definition of a node?)  I can't recall anything 
that actually did this.  Happy99 and 
PrettyPark did something similar, but really just 
creating a followup to the original 
(innocent) message.  It's unlikely you'd find 
something that would/could infect a 
router to perform this kind of action.  Not 
impossible, but unlikely.]

By node I am thinking moe of any server the file may travel through rather than a router.  And my theoretical question 
is more concerned with downloaded files (such as media files) than email.
Thus, if a web site provides a clean media file for download, can it become tainted by travelling through a compromised 

one step at a time...
