In the incoming exim queue new messages are coming in. They have the
"-D" and "-H" suffix added to the message id. When I run "exim -q",
they are delivered just fine. But the messages from the MailScanner
quarantine directory do not have two files per message with these
suffixes. There is only one file with the message id as the file name.
