join the amavisd-new list.  you will get direct answers to your 
questions from a very active, knoledgable group.
(and, NO, don't lower your spam threshold.. SA rules are scored to 
assume a default of 5.0 to mark spam.  )
if you are getting too much spam, then NORMAL SA assistance in SA group 
is your best bet.  if amavisd issues including what those additional 
settings do, then the amavis group
