Making progress.  I deployed my shiney new mimedefang-filter with

I used a sample spam with multiple addressees.  I notice that it processes
the original mail, drops it, creates copies, and 8 seconds later I see the
inividual copies start to appear in the logs.  I get these errors:

Sep 30 13:57:57 sadev mimedefang-multiplexor[19560]: Slave 0 stderr: Use of
uninitialized value $str in substitution (s///) at /usr/bin/mimedefang.pl
line 359.
Sep 30 13:57:57 sadev mimedefang-multiplexor[19560]: Slave 0 stderr: Use of
uninitialized value $arg2 in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/bin/mimedefang.pl line 512.

Thanks in advance,

On Fedora, you can reduce the clientmqueue interval by adding this
line to /etc/sysconfig/sendmail:


and restarting Sendmail.  (Use whatever interval you're comfortable
with if 1m is too short or too long.)

Must be a filter bug.
