Quarantine permissions

Hi Julian,

I've just been looking at putting a feature into MailWatch to release
quarantined spam and/or blocked files that a few people have requested.

I've still got a fair bit to do, but do have it working for the most part -
but I have to manually keep chown/chmodding the quarantine files as root as
Quarantine.pm creates the files/dirs mode 0700 root:root.  To work correctly
from MailWatch, ideally the dirs should be 0750 root:apache, and the files
0640 root:apache, but this will vary depending on people's local set-ups.

Any chance that you could add a couple of options the MailScanner.conf to
give the values for 'Quarantine Files Mode', 'Quarantine Dirs Mode' and
'Quarantine Owner/Group' or something similar?

Kind regards,
