    I must be going senile...  I have the following filter:

sub filter {
    my($entity, $fname, $ext, $type) = @_;

    $type =~ tr/A-Z/a-z/;

    if ($type ne "text/plain") {
                "An attachment named $fname was removed from this document as it\n" .
                "constituted a security hazard.\n" .
                "It was removed, but may be accessed at this URL:\n\n" .

    return action_accept();

    NOTE: our actual domain got replaced with the above url

    Yet, everything I send through it, HTML, attachments, anything, it all passes through like there's nothing there to begin with.  Each message that I've send through so far has the 'X-Scanned-By: MIMEDefang 2.2' line in them, so it's going through the filter, but it's not doing anything.

    So what am I missing?
