What messages amavis detects as viruses depends on what virus scanning
software you use with it.
It will always scan all attachments, regardless of filename, mime-type,
size or anything like that.
So, if I copied one of scannerdaemon virus signatures here, in the body
of this message, the message would never get to the destination. It
would be detected as a virus.
I am not sure, is this what you want? If not, it should be possible to
add what you want simply by modifying the code.
This isn't perfect though, I have received SPAM emails with very
suspicious attachments that aren't detected as virus...
