I've been ill for a while, so I'm playing catchup on this list, so
apologies for the late reply.

Anyway - that page should still be correct as I wrote it. The directory
names in quarantine have the additional few characters on the end of the
queuefile name, however the raw queue files within the directories have
their original filenames intact. Or at least, this is how it appears for
me using the following..

# Do you want to quarantine the original *entire* message as well as
# just the infected attachments?
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Quarantine Whole Message = yes

# When you quarantine an entire message, do you want to store it as
# raw mail queue files (so you can easily send them onto users) or
# as human-readable files (header then body in 1 file)?
Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = yes
