[Mimedefang] Simple mimedefang & sendmail question.

Do "man mimedefang-filter" and search for filter_recipient, I really 
recommend reading the man pages for mimedefang... very very good info can be 
gleaned from them.

If you are on a redhat(like) box though, just need to set the variable to yes 
in /etc/sysconfig/mimedefang and restart mimedefang.
