Ive installed mimedefang sucessfully.  Its installed on a redhat dist.  
  I copied the redhat init script to /etc/init.d and tried to get it  
to start.  I get an error message that says:
Starting mimedefang-multiplexor: ERROR: You must not run  
mimedefang-multiplexor as root.
Use the -U option to set a non-root user.
Starting mimedefang: ERROR: You must not run mimedefang as root.
Use the -U option to set a non-root user.

Can someone help me with the syntax of the init file so it will start  
mimedefang as a user named defang?  Ive been reading throught the  
readme and man pages, but dont seem to be able to wrap my brain around  
the syntax.
