   As long as the logic is "if {Features("SpamAssassin")}", everything
works. Whether that is by using the default supplied filter or whatever.
As soon as I try to require SA (so I can simplfy the filter logic), it

   I agree, but I'm at a loss as to what is "oddball". MD claims (at
compile/install) that it sees SA just fine. As I showed in my previous
message, "mimedefang.pl -features" and perl -MMail::SpamAssassin -e
'print "installed\n"'" both insist that SA is present.

   One thing that *might* be "oddball". I don't set environment
variables for MD - I pass it command-line parameters. So instead of
setting an environment variable "MX_EMBED_PERL", I just pass the "-E"
parameter to the multiplexor. Could this be an issue?
