What utility are you using to scan your email? We're using Amavisd and is
If you're using Amavisd look in the config file for something like this
$QUARANTINEDIR = '/var/virusmails'; # -Q
Here is how postfix works with Amavisd
INTERNET ==> (port 25) Postfix ==> Amavisd on port 1024 (where are the spams
taggued by spamassassin)==> on port 1025 postfix ==>inbox
This is using FreeBSD, not realy sure about Ubuntu.
Also when # cd /var/virusmails/
spam-K9fOGycSlfYi.gz spam-ezx5EzYfXbNK.gz spam-zoCSbTKgvQZN.gz
spam-KAzv6-RGal0F.gz spam-f3kZGmWZgLwa.gz spam-zqKQ+-2Fy2cl.gz
spam-KBTGe2Emf8gk.gz spam-f4mJRFuWk3JF.gz spam-zv9+JRtENGhB.gz
You should be able to read it txt file

Subject: Re: Where the spams are stored
OK :) thank you very much for you,
In fact, we can also redirect the spam in a folder by using "procmail".
Could you tell me please what type of file spam stored ( text or binary )?
I searched a lot on the web but I got no result :(
thank you very much !!!
