     No need.

} well my problem is solved, thanks everyone for all your help.
} the problem was not with mimedefang at all, purely a sendmail issue.
} still would appreciate anyone who can point me to a good guide on
} md_syslog(), as i am sure this will come in handy later.

     Here's a couple of examples from my filter:

md_syslog("debug", $QueueID . ", Number of recipients is: " . @Recipients);

md_syslog("debug", $QueueID . ", DEBUG: exiting filter_end");

The "debug" part is the priority.  I use $QueueID to be able to associate
the log entry with a particular message.  Here is a sample log entry:

Jun 30 02:27:37 vtn1 mimedefang.pl[26736]: k5U9RbEN023764, DEBUG: exiting filter_end
