Keep trapped spam?
The new system is working well for me... so far virtually 100% success rate on the account that I have enabled...

Question: Do you want the caught spam kept for 'training' purposes?

No - we want it deleted for "not filling up our disks" purposes. :> (I think that we are likely going to enforce some time limit on caught spam that's quarantined, after which it will be deleted).

I'm not aware of what space you need in order 'not to fill up the disks', but imho a certain leeway should be allowed.

So far i've seen that the default is 14 days which seem reasonnable, for people who are *not* on vacation (in here (france)some take up as 4 weeks in a row, believe it or not Wink). Wouldn't be a failsafe be in order ?

Say if someone does check their mail normally don't change the default, but if someone has not checked their mail, keep
the junk for a longer period (32 days for example), before
trashing it, just in case a legit mail got trapped by the filter and they're away for an extended period of time ?

(and yes i'm aware that people using external mail clients
in either POP or IMAP, don't make that easy. But hell some of my users are likely to travel far from any kind of internet
connection for extended periods)
