If you have Quarantine Infections = yes in your conf file then the virus
payload will be saved in the quarantine folder.  Otherwise no.  If you
are archiving email, then the payloads will also be in the archive
directory as part of the archived email message.

Hello All, 

Do the filename extension checks and subsequent quarantine happen before
or after the attachments are virus scanned. I'm concerned that viruses
may lurking in the MailScanner quarantine folder.
