I can't see the use of changing the owner or group on the Incoming Work
Dir, and it will slow things down quite a bit as I would have to chown
every single attachment of every message.
If you really want to be able to change this, please tell me!

So we get
Incoming Work Permissions = 0600
Quarantine Permissions = 0600
Quarantine User =
Quarantine Group =

By default it will set the quarantine user the same as the run as user, and
likewise for the group, so it won't try to change anything unless it needs to.
