I think I have it fixed.  It will be in the next full release.  In the
mean time, if you're brave, edit mimedefang.pl.in and delete
the entire "sub action_replace_with_warning" and replace with this:

sub action_replace_with_warning ($) {
    my($msg) = @_;
    $Action = "replace";
    $ReplacementEntity = MIME::Entity->build(Type => "text/plain",
					     Encoding => "-suggest",
					     Data => [ "$msg\n" ]);
    $ReplacementEntity->head->mime_attr("Content-Type.name" => "warning.txt");
    $ReplacementEntity->head->mime_attr("Content-Disposition" => "inline");
    $ReplacementEntity->head->mime_attr("Content-Disposition.filename" => "warning.txt");
    return 1;

Also, lines 231 and 261 of mimedefang.pl.in read:

	$ReplacementEntity->head->mime_attr("Content-Disposition" => $disposition);

Delete both of those lines.

Then do the old ./configure && make && make install routine.
