How to delete viruses and quarantine the bad attachments in the same time

So far I'have tried to delete viruses instead of quarantine them without
any luck.
I've updated MailScanner to the newest 4.24-5 and I set Silent Viruses to
All-Viruses as follow:
Silent Viruses = HTML-IFrame All-Viruses Klez Yaha-E Bugbear Braid-A
WinEvar Palyh Sobig Fizzer   # mnh T136

Sure, I've restared MailScanner on our relay boxes but still viruses are
For example the virus egkmwbn.exe was stored on
in /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine directory.  Any help how to stop it.
We'd like to be notified that the virus was detected but we don't want the
file to be stored on our gateway.  Any hint how to stop it?

The following e-mail messages were found to have attachment in them:

    Sender: robertagrossoni at
IP Address:
 Recipient: schow at
 MessageID: h9TEDh6E008434
    Report: /h9TEDh6E008434/egkmwbn.exe        Found the W32/Swen at MM
virus !!!
            Executable DOS/Windows programs are dangerous in email
