I've been meaning to mention it...

It's any notice that you create and keep the original Message-ID header 
when you might want to release the message from quarantine later.

So I guess that could affect any of the following:

Stored Size Message Report = %report-dir%/stored.size.message.txt
Sender Size Report = %report-dir%/
Sender Spam Report = %report-dir%/
Sender Spam List Report = %report-dir%/
Sender SpamAssassin Report = %report-dir%/
Recipient Spam Report = %report-dir%/
Recipient MCP Report = %report-dir%/
Sender MCP Report = %report-dir%/

Kind regards,
