When you use the Microsoft Antigen 9.0 for Exchange client to view items in the quarantine database, the quarantined items have an English (United States) date format (MM/DD/YYYY) instead of the date format that is configured in the regional settings on the server. Depending on local settings, messages that are quarantined might be lost if quarantine purging is configured and enabled. This is because certain messages might appear older than they really are. For example, a message that is quarantined on July 2, 2006 (MM/DD/YYYY) might be purged. This is because local settings might cause the date that the message was quarantined to instead appear as February 7, 2006 (DD/MM/YYYY).
