by adding rules to spamassassin, pretty easy

dont turn amavisd into a content filter, it works nicely as a filer 
framework, but not as a content filter

blocklist_subject .... in, remember sa do the mimedecode, so 
the email must be ripmime -i msg -d /tmp/ to get the mime decoded spam 

sorry i cant remember how to make sa rules for subject

ask for help on users at with a sample spammails 
with shows this problem
