As I was using amavisd-new-2.4.5-1.el5.noarch from the EPEL repo, I
thought I could try to upgrade to amavisd-new.x86_184.108.40.206-3.el5.rf
available at rpmforge repo. This caused me a whole lot of new problems
because the two RPMs were in fact totally different in their structure
(paths, config files, init scripts, etc.) but in the end *it seemed* it
worked and the release command gave this strange result (because there
were recipients indeed)!
[root at mailgw2 spam]# /usr/sbin/amavisd-release
250 2.5.0 No recipients, nothing to do
In any case, as I had modified various stuff which should not remain in
such condition (so the above may not be a truly representative result),
I decided and returned back to the original amavisd-new RPM and things
run as before.
Finally, as a test, I decided to set:
$spam_quarantine_method = "local:spam/%n-%m" ;
$spam_quarantine_method = "local:spam/%n-%m-%i" ;
And, to my (happy) surprise, this time it worked:

2.0.0 Ok: queued as 77B862F888B
...which was delivered fine.
So the question now is: Why the format "local:spam/%n-%m-%i" is not
working right with amavisd-release ?
