Any text that is part of the body of the message is analyzed by SpamBayes.
If you select "Show spam clues" on one of these messages and scroll to the
last section, "All Message Tokens", you'll see tokens such as 'avg',
'anti-virus', '6.0.714', etc.

Whether or not these tokens have any effect on the spam score will depend on
whether you have trained any messages that contain them.  At the top of the
"show spam clues" you'll see the "Significant Tokens", which are the tokens
that actually contributed to the score given to the message.
