sometimes microsoft exchange remembers the message id.. sometimes the 
receiving system also thinks its spam.

amavisd-release doesn't care.

look at mail logs, see where it went.
put a packet trace on (tcpdump/wireshark) see if /where it went.

look at logs on receiving mail server.

if spam is in filesystem, look at it there. zmore
