Something else...

In amavisd-new there are virus_name_to_spam_score_maps

For example:

If the setting to block macros is enable in ClamAV and is actually hitting,
it should hit with Heuristics.OLE2.ContainsMacros

But.. I don't think amavisd-new has a virus_name_to_spam_score_maps for
Heuristics.OLE2.ContainsMacros so, it might let the email through but
just mark it, instead of blocking it?


#     [ qr’^Heuristics\.OLE2\.ContainsMacros’                           
=> undef ],# keep as infected

Does that change things?
