You change the line

-o content_filter=smtp-amavis:[]:10024

to point to your own filter and ensure that eem sends the filtered mails to
amavis instead.

I am not certain why your filter is currently pointing back to port
10027. Amavis should be listening on port 10024. 

You will probably also have to allow your external machine access to
amavis. Usually amavis only accepts connections from the localhost.
