I am glad that I have been able to get the md_check_against_smtp_server added to remove the backscatter.
I am really glad that I've learned some context for Perl (some concepts from BASIC apply, but that's about it).
Can't imagine the amount of errors I'll incur when creating a new sub-routine for my_graphdefang_log(), but it will be a fun time.  I'm assuming that I start with the code from md_graphdefang_log and remove the variables.

(can you hear the sound of my O'Reily Perl for Beginners book opening?)

Thanks for all the help and consideration during this process from all involved.
