Blocked BANNED (text/plain,.movie,.mpg)

It is the text part of a message that was misqualified as a .mpg
video by your file(1) utility.  To confirm this, extract the message
text and see what the file(1) command thinks of it.

Which version of the file(1) utility is this?  ($ file -v )
Try installing a fresher version of complain to its maintainer,
or disable blocking of video files in amavisd.
