Yes, both .sock files are there which is why MimeDefang runs and still
processes mail.
I believe the error is in the status() function located in
/etc/init.d/functions file (which is what `service mimedefang status`

Can anybody else running a RedHat system either confirm or deny my thoughts?
If deny, what are the processes listed as when you issue a 'ps ax'; and
what does the init.d/mimedefang script have as the status() function?
