Upgrade your sendmail -- all versions prior to 8.12.3 (I think) have buggy
milter implementations.  The latest version is 8.12.5.  Be sure to rebuild
MIMEDefang against the latest libmilter, too.

Also, some of these "broken pipe" messages are normal.  Often, if the
peer times out or breaks the SMTP connection, you'll get the message.
So if it happens once in a while, it's probably OK.  If it happens a lot,
there's a problem.
