The notify function is probably not appropriate for this, but it got me
thinking again that it would be nice to have a daily email sent to users
who can scan a list of emails that MailScanner has quarantined.

The list would be clickable links to release individual messages from
quarantine. It would allow us to stop delivering low scoring spam, which
is 99% unwanted by users.

I guess I'm asking for a logging function that logs recipient, subject,
and the quarantined filename for each spam that is quarantined.
