That's what I thought also, and thats why I triple checked
everything once more... until I finally found the problem:
the patch that I copied from:

After reversing the patch mimedefang started to do its job.

Like Eric Fehr <eric at regolith.net> noticed in another post today:

I wonder what is that CA's patch mentioned here? I do not have any
patch now, and milter seem to work...
