We have a job that runs on a scheduled basis (2, 4, 8 hours or daily depending on recipient preferences) that goes through the msgs table and selects any messages that were quarantined during that time period  (viruses, banned files, spam, bad headers) and creates a report that it sends to the recipient with a list of the messages that were quarantined. The report contains the listing as well as a link to view/release the message back to the recipients mailbox.

That sounds pretty neat. I have a bash script that achieves something
very similar based on maildir-style quarantine.
