I just found the 'best thing since sliced bread':
Fantastic front end to amavisd ... moves the training/reporting/rescue to
a web front end, and keeps it out of the mailbox ...
Its finally allowed me to get rid of the spamcheck 'python link to lmtp'
which was a nightmare, and allows me to do per-user anti-virus and spam
processing, instead of 'either on, or off, for a whole domain' ...
