So, is there a way of using mimedefang-multiplexor
just as a milter with spamassassin ONLY and this
feature stream_by_recipient of mimedefang? I really
don't need to filter attachments anf MIME parts
because I already have antivirus milter, which filters
all the viruses. I just need milter for my sendmail to
filter SPAM with spamassassin, and also I'd like to
allow my users to have their own preferencer. That's
the problem when using spamass-milter.
