Hi Julian,

>>> Steve -- what do you think?

Yup - I agree and I'd be happy to add this feature into MailWatch.

It would fit in nicely with the work currently underway to allow users to
login to a new greatly simplified 'users' interface allowing them to see
their stats (a bit of MailScanner 'marketing'...), manage their quarantined
spam and a request to the admin to release a blocked attachments.  So it
wouldn't be too difficult to generate a daily e-mail for each user that has
quarantined items, listing them with a link to release them.

Kind regards,

Sorry to pass the buck on this one, but would this be better implemented
MailWatch? It's an archiving and log analysis problem, not a mail
