Summary0018291: Mail quarantine gets too large - pruning required
DescriptionA customer had 3000 files with a total of 5.6 GB in the quarantine that dated back to 2014. The UI takes too long to load the quarantine list, and it would be wise to purge the files from quarantine from time to time.

If using "find", use ctime and not mtime. Look at this:
[root@server quarantine]# stat *

The file was created by Micro$oft on 2010-03-31(mtime). It was moved into quarantine on 2019-07-11 at 11:03:17 (ctime), and last accessed on 2019-07-11 at 10:08:27 (when it was in its previous un-quarantined location by the scanner) (atime).

atime is not safe to use as some users add the noatime paramater in /etc/fstab to reduce disk writes.
