Hey folks,

    I know that this massage is not the first one 'bout this subject, 
but even reading all the rest of the mailing list log i couldn't fix my 
    Well, first of all, the daemons are running pretty ok: the 
mimedefang, and the multiplexor are GOOD, they start with no errors.
    I did the "*mimedefang reread*" too and there was no error rereading 
the filter file.
    Talking 'bout the filter file, it is pretty ok too. i did 
"*mimdefang.pl -test*" and "*mimedefang -f /etc/mail/mimedefang-filter 
-test*" and both looks good.

    BUT, the problems goes here:
    when i try to send an email here comes a msg: "/An error occurred 
while sending mail. The mail server responded: 4.3.2 PLease try again 
later. Please check the message and try again/"

    Ok, so I took a look at my mail.err logs... so it was like this:

/Aug  3 17:04:19 fefnet119 mimedefang-multiplexor[3250]: Slave 1 died 
prematurely -- check your filter rules
Aug  3 17:04:19 fefnet119 mimedefang-multiplexor[3250]: Reap: Idle slave 
1 (pid 3260) exited normally with status 25 (SLAVE)
Aug  3 17:04:19 fefnet119 mimedefang[3288]: Error from multiplexor: ERR 
No response from slave

Someone has an answer for those crazy things????
