Default Problem with postfix receiving email from outside

I am fairly new to postix and I just recently followed the Howto for centos and postfix/amavisd. I can send mail using mailx on the localhost machine, but when I try to send mail using telnet to the server from outside I keep getting a weird issue in the mail logs. It keeps changing the email from "email@domain" to "emailundefpam@domain" or something similiar.

This is strange to me, as I do not know what is causing this issue. Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.

I guess that amavisd is doing that, maybe because the mail is categorized as spam. Please check your amavisd configuration.
