    hi all,

    i have noticed my / mount has been growing and growing.

    a more careful look revealed that the /quarantine folder has 2GB worth of data. (files with filenames like Q388641.16955633.27659.000.meta Q8388641.9999948.5718.000.file etc)
    I presume this is from spamassassin.

    1. is it normal that this folder is in the root folder?
    shouldn't it be e.g. in the home or var folder? Where can i define the location of the quarantine so that I can move it to a larger partition? I could not find anything relevant in exim.conf or the spamassassin config file.

    2. Is it safe to delete all these files to clean the quarantine folder?

    thanks in advance
