[pmg-devel] [PATCH pmg-api 3/3] pmgspamreport: purge before sending reports

By cleaning the quarantine (database and files in spool directory), before
trying to send out mail we can prevent the file-system and database from
filling up because of an unrelated problem in sending out mails.

Originally discovered while analyzing why the quarantine spooldir on a
non-master node fills up, while being limted in size on the master-node:
the call to send out the reports errored out, because the node was not master.

Alternatively if the order should remain send, then purge prefixing
'/usr/bin/pmgqm' with '-' in the ExecStart line achieves the same effect
