Does it happen to ALL Office 2007 documents, or just some?

If it happens to all, I'd suspect something Micro$oft has done to make it more difficult to use Linux in association with those files. Otherwise, I'd suspect they are all infected, or have some code (such as a macro) which triggers Amavis to reject the file.

Read the Amavis documentation (probably somewhere in /usr/share). Specifically, look for references to Whitelisting. I know you can whitelist Senders, but I don't know if you can also whitelist filetypes. Whitelisting might solve your problem.
