    You need to edit the amavisd.conf file.

    this should work OOTB with Z-Admin ...

    but if not, the file is not easy to find because there's no amavisd.conf
    u r right with configuring the quarantine-dir in 20-debian-defaults
    the var $MYHOME, where the quarantine-dir is located in, can be set in /usr/share/amavis/conf.d/10-debian-scripts
    by default $MYHOME is set to /var/lib/amavis
    so ur quarantine-dir should be /var/lib/amavis/virusmails by default

    maybe a permisson prob?
    is the quarantine-dir existing?
    correct permissions for user amavis?

    following lines taken from

    - create a directory (e.g. /var/virusmails) to be used by amavisd-new
    as a quarantine area (if quarantining to files is desired).
    Set ownership and protection of the directory to be readable and
    writable by the chosen UID, and not writable by other non-privileged
    mkdir /var/virusmails
    chown amavis:amavis /var/virusmails
    chmod 750 /var/virusmails

    regards ...

    current system : ZARAFA 7.1.13 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x64) with Z-Admin
    user base : WIN 2008 R2 (x64) with ADS-plugin ...
    backups are overvalued ...
    restore is important ...
