No, that won't cut it. That only works when the messages are in the postfix
hold queue, which these aren't.
When the messages have been quarantined, regardless of MTA, you need script
a way to reintroduce them into the mailflow, as suggested in this thread.
IIRC there is a few scripts/suggestions about that in the wiki... And
creating the script from scratch is rather trivial too.
However... One need take into consideration any special rules (in
MailScanner) for locally supplied mail, and perhaps temporarily disable any
such rule... It is rather common practice ro have a rule bypassing
scanning, to facilitate easy release from quarantine, that would kind of
defeat the purpose of MS:-).
I guess one has to know obes own setup well enough to determine that, or
accept that some crap will get through.
