Rejected email redirect

SA already has a lot of HELO rules, due to all the spam from bots, and
the lack of decent HELO checks in MTAs by default.

Use score actions in MailScanner.conf to put spam in quarantine or 
tag/deliver or whatever. Quarantine here is MTA quarantine, not an IMAP 
folder named "quarantine".

If you want them in specific IMAP folders, you'll need to use your LDA + 
sieve, procmail, or similar to match something in the headers - like the 
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck header with "HELO_"
