I've changed mine back to not-store and will test again. When I had it like that before I still had the "release" button below and the message stored on the MX server, which is why I tried "delete" and it still did the same thing, so thought I'd ask on the list.

I don't mind the message headers and information being stored in MailWatch, I'm just trying to avoid the storage of the (very highspam) mail on the mail servers after they've been analysed and reported.

I quarantine all mail into MailWatch, clean, normal spam, high spam. I've got SA rules in place which bump up the SA score so high scoring spam is now _very_ high scoring spam, and that spam never has false positives so I don't want them stored.

I'll report back later today to see if the "not-stored" option works this time.
