"Sendmail is difficult to replace in OpenEMM by other MTAs because
- - spool files can easily be generated directly (the process is documented)
- - therefore, OpenEMM can assign spool file names so that OpenEMM has
sufficient ID information encoded to use the names for bounce management
during mail transmission"
I don't know if I understand the 1. statement correctly, but they seem to
say that they create the spool files for sendmail directly, bypassing the
"injection" via both sendmail executable and socket.
If that's correct, no milter can be activated obviously. OpenEMM is open
source, so IMHO patch the processing you want to make into its
"injection". If you don't want to patch OpenEMM, you need to get to know
how the mail flow of OpenEMM is, how many sendmail configurations there
are (the 2nd statement above let me assume that OpenEMM runs its own
configuration), and put some filter in between. That might brake the
