The Amavis::IO::RW is used by the client side of the SMTP protocol
implementation, or when communicating with some external virus scanners.

If the 'Connection reset by peer' by the end of a SMTP session occurs
rarely and a message was delivered nevertheless, it probably just means
that an MTA disconnected before the final QUIT command, so this should
be safe to ignore. It may also be a consequence of restarting an MTA
while message transfer from amavisd back to MTA was in progress.

If this occurs often, examining a more detailed log would be in order.
