Ahh.. kill -INT, I was trying kill -HUP. Thanks.

Everything I do is system-wide. I implement mimedefang in a sendmail gateway
that is in front of an exchange organization. There are no local mailboxes
(well, aside from this spamtroll). I've found that add_recipient, rather
than action_resend($recip) keeps it from being scanned a second time.
Procmail delivers it to an mbox formatted file which I can then monitor with
mail and submit as appropriate to razor with the --mbox flag. Works great.
Though I will have to run a script on the mbox to strip out the added [Spam]
to the subject before razor-report.
