Amavisd/Postfix error when testing mail system

Hello all,

I have an interesting problem when I attempt to send a test message to amavisd and postfix. Here is what I am doing.

Attempting to test amavisd :

dspam:~# telnet 10024
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
220 [] ESMTP amavisd-new service ready
250 2.1.0 Sender OK
250 2.1.5 Recipient OK
354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
Subject : Test 2 Eicar



Below is the error message I get when I try to send the message through the system. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

451 4.5.0 Error in processing, id=08255-02, parts_decode_ext FAILED: parsing file(1) results - missing last 1 results at (eval 39) line 154.

Does the same problem present when getting rid of the eicar test string, i.e. a plain-text e-mail? Also, what if you get rid of amavisd running in front of Postfix so only Postfix is handling the inbound message - is the mail succesfully delivered?
