See the sanitizer code that logs the MSGID on quarantines. You can
copy the same rule out for your own use (changing the filename, of
course) and it will work after the sanitizer runs (as the sanitizer is
what sets $MSGID).

I've been graphing the quarantined messages at my place of work for a
while now - the hits are *way* down, I think because we're DNSBL-ing
open relays, and that takes care of a lot of the worm-infected
