I've created multiple quarantine databases and then set up my server rules so that the rules put certain mail in different quarantine databases. For instance, my company gets a lot of inbound e-mail containing ZIP files -- but many new viruses come in ZIP files. So, all inbound SMTP e-mail that contains ZIP files goes to a database named Quarantine_ZIP, filename qtine_zip.nsf. The same applies for COM, EXE and a handful of other file attachments. This works in concert with the antivirus software running on the SMTP server to virtually eliminate viral infection. I apply the same theory to certain keywords that are commonly found in spam e-mail.
