Thought about it but we don't want to have 4gb of mail to keep and sort 
through each day. A separate quarantine of just learned mail would be 
easier to manage.

There is also the thought that keeping a copy of learned mail for spam 
purposes could be justified if a recipient is subscribed to the spam 
filtering tool. Keeping all mail might not justified/legal, we don't know.

We have lawyers to tell us should we decide to ask, please let's not 
start a thread on legalities of mail archives ;^)

Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
