I wonder TB can support qmail Maildir format to store the mail. In MS Windows, the antivirus software will delete the mbox file if I receive a virus mail. Thus my whole mail box will be deleted. If TB use maildir format , it can avoid this.

a better way would be simply to make incoming messages goto it's own single file until checked by antivirus/spam/filters.
