Can you explain this more? It sounds brilliant, but I don't follow

I started storing every message because bayes_99 suddenly started
marking 20% of the ham as spam, I need a way to find and release my
customers e-mail after it had been marked as spam.

Are you saying if I turned that off, the only messages showing up in
quarantine would be Him at Hiusdomain.cmo and those with a virus?
