'Turn On Quaranteen'
When 'Turn On Quaranteen' is checked, one of four things
will happen to an e-mail. First, if the e-mail has an attachment
that could be executed on Windows, then the program will rename
the attachment. This e-mail will arrive at its regular

of a very well known virus in the virus database, then the
attachment will be renamed and the e-mail will be placed in the 'Emails
