If I read you right, you just need to add "store" to your "Non Spam
Actions" (
So if you have
Non Spam Actions = deliver header "X-Spam-Status: No"
in /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf, you'd just change it to
Non Spam Actions = store deliver header "X-Spam-Status: No"
... That way all messages will end up in the quarantine (in a
"non-spam" subdirectory).
You'll need make a script or somesuch that clears out this, after a
few days, so that you don't fill your disks too fast:-), at least if
you want this to be a permanent solution. If it is just a few hours
(to actually get to look at the false negatives, and decide what to do
about them....), you could just do that manually;-).

If these are mostly image spam, look for the ImageInfo spamassassin
plugin from ... It made a world of difference
for me!

(hope you don't mind me redirecting this back to the list, since this
is actually "on-topic";-)
