My config is:

High Scoring Spam Actions = store
Keep Spam And MCP Archive Clean = no

However I don't seem to understand that last option.
I have it to 'no' cause "there is small hit in performance", as
it listed in the conf. By setting it to yes you don't
put viruses in the quarantine?

Users cannot release mails from quarantine.
I do it through the MailWatch for them.

So you're telling me that by default
it does NOT scan messages for viruses
if I haven't got any deliver/forward rule in actions?
