Well, if they were delivered, they wernt blocked, they were quarantined either .

Looks like you were trying to implement something that is not supported by amavis so, I suspect you're not going to get your patch applied.

Currently spam is delivered to the user with a changed subject line.
Since this system is "on probation" I review the messages and some of
them are important enough that I would like to re-deliver them to my
users without the "*** SPAM ***" tag in the subject line.

So those messages have an empty "X-Envelope-To-Blocked" since they
where not blocked in the first place but I would like to
amavisd-release them never the less.

Does that clarify your question?
