[Mimedefang] Using filter_recipient without using the rest?

Hi everyone,

In order to cut back on bounces, double bounces and the like, I'd like 
to use MimeDefang on our secondary MX-es too. We've now got a nice 
filter_recipient that does a forward check. But we only queue on our 
backup MX-es, without filtering.

There are command-line switches to tell mimedefang whether you want to 
call filter_recipient, filter_helo etc. - but there's no switch (that I 
could find) for disabling the main mimedefang functionality. Replacing 
all other filter subroutines with 'return' might work but would incur 
quite a bit of overhead.

Do you have any suggestions on disabling mimedefang (except for 
filter_recipient)? Would this be a usefull feature?

Regards, Paul Boven.
