In order to silence the bayes database sync messages that are frequently
sent via cron, could you consider fix along the lines of

--- /usr/sbin/amavisd-new-cronjob       2008-10-11 07:17:30.000000000 +0300
+++ /tmp/amavisd-new-cronjob    2009-01-12 09:20:53.960773192 +0200

 case $1 in
-               do_amavis_cmd "/usr/bin/sa-learn --sync >/dev/null"
+               do_amavis_cmd "/usr/bin/sa-learn --sync 2>&1 | egrep -v '^bayes: synced databases from journal in [0-9]+ seconds: [0-9]+ unique entries \([0-9]+ total entries\)$'"
                do_amavis_cmd "/usr/bin/sa-learn --sync --force-expire >/dev/null"

This would discard the annoying and totally useless sync messages but keep other possible error messages.
