Cyrus and I had a little back and forth on this question:

What happens if a spamtest/virustest filter hits a message that has not been checked for spam/virii by the implementation? There possibly should be a code that means "untested". (For the case of implementations that implement spamtest/virustest in real time, it would be equivalent to indicate a message that can not be tested at this time for some reason.)

A couple of suggestions that Cyrus had were to use either the value 0 or some negative number (-1) as untested.

FYI New SIEVE draft available. This proposes a couple of new tests designed to make handling of spam and virus testing easy for end-users writing scripts. Comments appreciated...

    Title        : SIEVE spamtest and virustest Extensions

The SIEVE [SIEVE] 'spamtest' and 'virustest' extensions permit users
to use simple, portable commands for spam and virus tests on email
messages.  Each extension provides a new test with simple semantics.
It is the responsibility of the underlying SIEVE implementation to
do the actual checks that result in values returned by the tests.
