You need to see WHY the slave is dying.

You CANNOT see that unless you enable logging of slave's standard error
output from the multiplexor.  If you're on Debian, that should
be enabled, I believe.  But check the startup script to make sure it's
passing the -l option to mimedefang-multiplexor.

Next, check your logs.  You should see lines like:

mimedefang-multiplexor[pid]: Slave x stderr: Some error message here...

Without the above info, there is NO WAY to figure out your problem.
