[Mimedefang] Newbie Question

If I recall, (and I can look) the default install doesn't tag emails, but
is easy to change in the mimedefang-config file in /etc/mail.

Towards the end of the file is where the logic is located (in perl).

You can make it do anything you want.

I think I have mine to always add a "X-spam-score" (or something similar)
to every email regardless...

then you can look in the headers if you want for the score...
