My amavisd-new installation is using mysql for logging and reporting so I can
use MailZu. My quarantine is currently working fine with plain files.  I can
release quarntined files via MailZu.

I would now like the quarantine to be in mbox file format.

My understanding from the docs and experimenting is that $QUARANTINEDIR should
be set to the mbox file name to achieve this.

The quarantine works as expected but when I try to release via MailZu I see the following in /var/log/maillog

Feb 24 12:29:58 ben amavis[49018]: (!!)policy_server FAILED: Unsafe filename
   '/var/amavis/quarantine/dgdmbox' at (eval 112) line 309, <GEN26> line 7.

After a bit of poking around I realized the regular expression that triggers
the Unsafe message does not like a leading / .

If I set $QUARANTINEDIR to just a filename without path information where
would amavisd think the file would be located ?

Does anyone have a working example of what to set $QUARANTINEDIR to to havei
this new setup work successfully ?
