We have a webform that users may use to request

1) All spam be quarantined
2) High spam be quarantined, low spam delivered
3) All spam be delivered.

Then once the mail is tagged, we pass it thru a filter which does what
was asked.

A user who gives no preference gets option 1

Not sure this is really on topic for this forum, but anyhoo....

What are people's opinions on dealing with spam in a corporate 
environment? Is it best to quarantine and advise original sender? Tag 
and deliver? Quarantine high scoring and then tag and deliver below a 
certain score? What strategies do you use?
