yes thats true, but there are also vars which are not in the db.
As example: the field virus_quarantine_to in the db only allows local mail-aliases or a normal email-address for forwarding the mails. i would like to use local quarantine-dirs with different folders and sql-logging. So... when the field virus_quarantine_to in the db is set (empty string = set), amavis doesn't read the virus_quarantine_method-AND virus_quarantine_to-var out of the config-file, which would let me realize my config desired.
The vars *_quarantine_method couldn't set in the db.
i hope you understand, what i mean...
thanks & good night
