Except that read_commands_file isn't working.  I'm seeing:

Apr 18 16:26:28 mail mimedefang[11357]: Error from multiplexor: error: 
Cannot open COMMANDS file from mimedefang: No such file or directory

Looks like filter_helo() gets run before envfrom() will have
been called???  envfrom() is where all the write_macro_value's
