This is probably a result of amavis being restarted. Do you run sa-update
daily and does it sa-compile and restart amavis afterwards?

That's a message entering your MTA via SMTP on 10025. Looks like amavis
transporting a message to Postfix.

If you want to scan RAR-archives you should probably install either 'rar' or
'unrar'. Once you've installed one of them, the message will vanish.

Measure, don't speculate. ;-) Check if the Queue-ID xoFkWZwqm0CN is in the
logwatch email you have on your mind.

> Are any of these something I should/could something about?

I would

- write a rule to ignore "Deleting db..."
- install rar or unrar
