The line fine_name_tpl is also used to define where the attachments are
Mine looks like:
file_name_tpl = /var/quarantine/att-$F-$T.$$
Which defaults it to /var/quarantine, and renames the extension to something
rather nasty in general :-) (att-<random char><safe name>-<random char><unix
time>.<2 random chars>).
If left undefined, it uses the following (found in Sanitizer.pm):
... which means they're stored in /tmp - not a bad place, but tmpwatch on
some distros will wipe them out if unused for a period of time. Better hope
it's not important if you forget about it :-)
At any rate, the directory must exist according to the docs. /tmp is pretty
safe w/ that assumption.
