Well that's good news then :)
I wanted an extra option and you're telling me
that it's the default :))

Don't mind having a dirty quarantine.
Sometimes I get unacceptable attachments, blocked filenames
or filetypes, or other non-delivered infections which some times
are valid mail and want to be able to release them.

ps. I did a check on the logs for a high spam

It looks like it does scan high scored spam although my conf is

Spam Actions = deliver store header "X-Spam-Status: Yes"
High Scoring Spam Actions = store

Does 'Spam Action' count for high spam as well?
