Take a look at this option:

# Do you want to stop any virus-infected spam getting into the spam  
or MCP
# archives? If you have a system where users can release messages  
from the
# spam or MCP archives, then you probably want to stop them being  
able to

# need it.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Keep Spam And MCP Archive Clean = no
