[Mimedefang] MD Quarantine Management

Hi Paul,

I changed the perms on the quarantine directory a while back using the
command published in the original post and sendmail died as it reported
(I think this was the error) that the directory was "world writeable".

It was a while back now.

So I decided that as I didn't need immediate access to quarantined items
on a minute to minute basis, I would copy the quarantine dirs to
somewhere else.

Running quarantine.pl as root and with the directories all owned by root
I still get directory permissions errors.

One thing I did notice was that my quarantine dirs are at
\var\spool\MIMEDefang and not the script default. Changing the two
scripts at the top of the config area to this still reported problems
and I discovered that the MD quarantine folder is hard coded further
down so I changed those too although the script says not to :-)

I was wondering whether I had the very latest versions of the scripts.

Can you point me in the direction of the latest versions please Paul?
