   Thanks to everyone who replied. I ended up adding some lines to
mimedefang-filter as suggested by the replies below.  I felt this was a
better idea than hacking the mimedefang.pl script - that if, add the
function via a configuration file change as opposed to altering the code
itself (altho I'm sure changing mimedefang.pl would work well).
