If you want to quarantine clean mails into SQL database for further approval (with iRedAdmin-Pro or other tools), please try below steps:

Configure Amavisd to enable quarantining

  • Edit Amavisd config file, find below settings and update them. If it doesn't exist, just add them.
    • on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Scientific Linux, it's /etc/amavisd.conf or /etc/amavisd/amavisd.conf.
    • on Debian/Ubuntu, it's /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user
    • on FreeBSD, it's /usr/local/etc/amavisd.conf
    • on OpenBSD, it's /etc/amavisd.conf
File: amavisd.conf
$clean_quarantine_method = 'sql:';
$clean_quarantine_to = 'clean-quarantine';
  • Find policy bank 'MYUSERS', append two lines in this policy bank:
File: amavisd.conf
$policy_bank{'MYUSERS'} = {
    clean_quarantine_method => 'sql:',
    final_destiny_by_ccat => {CC_CLEAN, D_DISCARD},
  • Make sure you have '@storage_sql_dsn' enabled. For example:
File: amavisd.conf
@storage_sql_dsn = (
    ['DBI:mysql:database=amavisd;host=;port=3306', 'amavisd', 'qAv9CYva0vHA1GCX0J9f23WJvqRzt7'],
  • Restart Amavisd service.

That's all. Now all clean emails sent by your mail users will be quarantined into SQL database. if you have iRedAdmin-Pro, you can manage (release or delete) quarantined emails with it. Screenshot of iRedAdmin-Pro for your reference.
