pardon my ignorance, but i really don't know how to use md_syslog()
very well.  What parameters should i use with md_syslog()?

should i fiddle with the line that says
"md_graphdefang_log_enable('mail', 1);" at all?

i have unconditionally called "action_add_header("X-Bugger","e-mail
buggered by mimedefang"); at the begining of filter_end().

neither that header or X-Scanned-By is added.

i think you recommended putting this in filter_begin() in a later
message, i'm trying that now

do you know where i could find a checklist of correct settings?

how do you display multiplexor settings?  I do something like "ps -U
defang -o command" and i don't get the full length of the command

i just startup the multiplexor using the startup script provided in
the examples directory which i stick in rc.d without any edits, which
is what worked for me in the past.
