apt-cache show amavisd-new
Description: Interface between MTA and virus scanner/content filters
 AMaViSd-new is a script that interfaces a mail transport agent (MTA) 
with zero or more virus scanners, and spamassassin (optional).
 AMaViSd-new supports all MTAs through its generic SMTP filter mode 
(ideal for postfix and exim).  It is faster and safer to use the SMTP filter 
mode than using the AMaViS pipe client.
 When in doubt about which amavis-* package to use, try this one.
