You really should have the F=T flag, too.

That won't work well -- the multiplexor will not be used (no "-m" on
mimedefang invocation.)  It will be painfully slow (as you've discovered.)

There's a script in examples/init-script which is generic for any UNIX
platform.  Edit it as required, rename to "mimedefang-ctrl" and use:

	mimedefang-ctrl start   # to start MIMEDefang
	mimedefang-ctrl stop    # to stop MIMEDefang
