[Mimedefang] watch-mimedefang

I'd like to start with the cygwin idea.  I am in the process of loading
cygwin.  I tried the default load and apparently that was insufficient to
run watch-mimedefang.  So, I added the whole X11 section and it's been
downloading for an hour (I have a fast connection).  I feel like I'm
downloading half the Internet.  Is there certain packages I need for cygwin
to work?  I tried to look through the list looking for tcl/tk but didn't
find anything that looked promising.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, if you install a Windows X server - the free cygwin one will work.
  However, if you do much linux work, I'd recommend something slightly
different.  Pick a linux box near the servers - perhaps one where you do
testing and development and install the 'freenx' package.  Then install
the NX client from www.nomachine.com on your windows desktop(s).  This
lets you run a complete Linux GUI desktop remotely in what appears to
windows as a normal window so you get cut/paste between systems, etc.
Besides being easier to install than most windows X packages, this also
lets you disconnect the session and pick it up with everything still
running, perhaps from a different client, and it is very efficient over
low bandwidth connections.
