I recently noticed that my email server now delivers spam to final 
recipients even though the spam score is more than the 

A probable reason is that some amavisd update has introduced new 
configuration variables, which I have not defined in my configuration, 
and the default value of some such variable causes this unwanted behavior.

I tried to go through documentation, but did not find the reason. Has 
anybody else had the same problem?
