Hi All,

I have looked over the book and Googled. Please let me know how to release
an email from quarantine. Is there a fancy way to do it, or do I just
forward the mail on to the user as email from me (root)? This is a
".com.pdf" file, and was caught in the filename test. I don't want to read
anyone's mail!

If it's a matter of just dropping the directory inside the quarantine
(three files -- header, body, attachment) into the outgoing queue... has
anyone build tools to help them automate this? Or even let the end user
release them? I can do that, just wanted to know if possible.

Thanks very much!

Andy Norris
