Setting the number of days to quarantine mail to anything other than 0 results in messages simply building up in the quarantine directory. 

Is there a simply fix for this?  10k or more emails build up quickly...

That's the whole point of the quarantine... Instead of simply rejecting spam email it will quarantine it in the quarantine directory so administrators can review them and possibly force delivery of legitimate email that was classified as spam.

You miss my question/point...  Unless I set it at 0 then the directory never cleans itself out.  Mail just keeps building up...

Setting it at one day is not different than setting it at 3 days...  it never cleans...

Can you let us know the following:

  • How many days you have set in the "Days to quarantine" settings.
  • Sorting the quarantine contents by date, the oldest and newest file dates
  • The number of files in the quarantine
  • Ballpark your daily traffic in emails/day
