   It doesn't use the HEADERS file.  In mimedefang.pl, MD reads in the
contents of INPUTMSG into an array.  It then prepends the synthesized
headers to the array and passes that to its call to SA.  Look in
mimedefang.pl at the spam_assassin_mail() procedure to see how this is
done.  If you want to add your own headers, you would have to edit
