Yes, but I reran ./configure (and read the instructions that came with MD)
and now MIMEDefang starts up when I start Sendmail.

Here's another problem (?) though: I added this to my sendmail.mc:

`S=unix:/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock, F=T, T=S:5m;R:5m')

and regenerated sendmail.cf from sendmail.mc. But when I look at
sendmail.cf, I don't see anything referring to MIMEDefang, or MAIL_FILTER at
all. I'm wondering if this got into my sendmail.cf at all.  How do I tell if
MIMEDefang is working?

I'll appreciate help as I get the kinks worked out.
