[Mimedefang] Two questions

System is Red Hat 6.2 I've followed the HOWTO to get MIMEDefang
1) I copied the init script in the redhat/ directory. It gets me this:
[root at mail mimedefang-2.31]# service mimedefang start
Starting mimedefang: /etc/rc.d/init.d/mimedefang: test: integer
expression expected before -gt
WARNING: Use of mimedefang without the -m option is deprecated.
Support for non-multiplexor operation will be removed in a future
ERROR: You must not run mimedefang as root.
Use the -U option to set a non-root user.
I've looked in that script but aren't sure what line(s) I need to edit
to add those options.
2) Knowing next to nothing about perl and not seeing a clear explanation
in the HOWTO... how exactly do I tell mimedefang to act on certain
attachments? I've got the list of "evil" attachments... I want to make
those go away, and other attachments (like .exe) I want to bounce to the
sender with a message about how to properly submit those.
