>On one system with amavis I'm encountering an issue with encrypted RAR files - they are "Passed CLEAN" on a system with "unrar-free" from Debian (http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/unrar-free) :

Amavisd can't unrar a file that is encrypted at all, neither can it unzip etc. Sometimes the files names within a Zip file are visible even if they are encrypted but they can't be unpacked and scanned.

If that's a problem you could consider making rar files one of the banned file types.

As far as I am aware it isn't a bug but expected behaviour.

Kindest regards,
