This assumes you're willing to live with the version in the Debian
release you're running;  if you're running a production server you
probably don't want to go testing or unstable- which means, at the
moment, that you get mimedefang-2.16 IIRC.  :/

On the other hand, it *is* an easier system for handling dependencies-
and if you really want to, you can (relatively) easily pull current
versions into stable from testing or unstable by either backporting
source or apt pinning (something I have to investigate).

<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to
ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my
apartment it is.
