MIMEDefang 2.36-BETA-1 is at the download page:

The major change from 2.35 is the elimination of stdio from the
last spot where it causes scalability problems.  I realize that an
extremely busy production Solaris mail server is not where most people
want to put a beta, but if there's someone out there who can test this
beta on such a machine, I'd appreciate it.  It should eliminate the
problem with being unable to read the RESULTS file because of a lack
of stdio streams.

As a bonus, the non-stdio implementation releases the RESULTS file
descriptor more quickly, and that should help scalability in general.

Complete changelog from 2.35 follows.  I've been extremely busy
lately; if you've sent me a patch and I dropped it, I apologize -- please
let me know.
