Nope.  mimedefang.pl is invoked by mimedefang-multiplexor.  mimedefang is
invoked separately; check the init script.

And you need:

	-x ""

to remove the X-Scanned-By: header.  In other words, you must supply
a literal zero-length string as argument to -x.

Because Sendmail is finicky about logging.  In your Sendmail M4 file
(you do use M4, right?), add this:

	define(`confMILTER_LOG_LEVEL', 1)

to make the Milter logging less verbose.
