I figured out a way that a message could get past SpamBayes without being
touched - if it didn't have the blank line that *must* be in all messages
between the headers & body (even if there are no headers or no body, the
blank line is still required). In that case, SpamBayes would pass it
through, thinking it was an error response. I've fixed this in CVS now, but
I suspect maybe it's to blame here.
(This is assuming that all the ones that slip through are this type that
have no separator).
Does your setup go server-AVG-spambayes-client, or
server-spambayes-AVG-client? If it's the latter, this would explain it, and
explain why the "Review" page doesn't have AVG headers. If the former, then
because AVG adds the 'checked' message to incoming mail, I would have
thought it would then be ok. I'm not positive, though.

I'm not familiar enough with the mailer to know, sorry - but that is good
How often do you get messages like this? If it's quite often, then I can
send you a patched sb_server and see if this does stop it.
