Again, I did give you the variables to play with:

You need to edit /etc/amavisd/amavisd.conf

$mydomain = 'example.com';                  # Edit: a convenient default 
for other settings
$helpers_home = "$MYHOME/var";              # Uncomment: working 
directory for SpamAssassin, -S
$myhostname = 'mail.example.com';           # Uncomment & Edit: must be 
a fully-qualified domain name!

     $log_level = 1; # set the log level to one
     $sa_tag_level_deflt = -999; # i want to see the headers so change 
to -99
     $sa_tag2_level_deflt = 5.0; # start with 5
     $sa_kill_level_deflt = 9; # change to 9
     $sa_dsn_cutoff_level = 9; # change to 9
     $sa_quarantine_cutoff_level = 50; # remove the starting # and 
change to 50
     $notify_method = 'smtp:[]:10025'; # uncomment the line
     $forward_method = 'smtp:[]:10025'; # uncomment the line
     $final_banned_destiny = D_BOUNCE; # change to D_DISCARD
     $final_spam_destiny       = D_PASS; # 

Play with these.  First read the docs about what they do and set them to 
take the action you wish.

'Everyone' sets these to their own tastes.
