Restoring quarantine files?

Well, the quarantined file is just dropped onto your server. I generally go
ahead and re-send it to them using mutt:

mutt "user at" -a quarantined_file -s "here's your file" </dev/null

Since it's running on the same machine, the re-send gets delivered by
directly invoking the local mailer and does not get re-run through MailScanner.

But you can also FTP it off, or whatever is convenient to use.
