Good point. Some sort of spam quarantining that made an mbox format file
for each day. Would you want viruses in there too, or just spam? We could

Quarantine spam in mbox format = yes/no

I don't think I'm going to write it now, but I hope it will make it to V4.
If V4 ships without it, remind me :-)
