    Just used a tutorial to install postfix and amavis. It works perfectly, it filters out spam and virusses. But it keeps copies in it's quarentine /var/lib/amavis/tmp and /var/lib/amavis/virusmails. Is there a command to clean out those directories? Or can i write a script to clean out those directories? other wise the filesystem fills it self till death?

    You can change the amavisd configuration to not quarantine mails.

    Why does Amavis quarantine these mails. Does Amavis use these emails or is it only for the administrator to see wich emails are spam?

    I think it's somewhere in the /etc/amavisd/conf.d/ directory.

    The quarantining is defined in one of these files. You can try to find the file with:

    grep quarentine /etc/amavisd/conf.d/*
