Outstanding mail archiving bug

I've seen this, too. Using SA 2.61 MS 4.24-5 w/postfix on debian stable.

I've gotten around it by saving the quarantine files as postfix queue
Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = yes

This works well since I can do a 'postdrop < queuefile' to deliver
to the user any HTML newsletters (or whatever) that get blocked for
having iframe, object codebase or form tags in them. And 'postcat
queuefile | head' to get the sender for adding to the rules.

It doesn't happen all the time. I haven't been able to tie it down to
any pattern. But, I do know it's not just form tags.
