Well, that's trivial.  MIMEDefang's filter is Perl, so just call out to
Sendmail to send the notification.  Or use any of a number of CPAN modules
to compose and send the notification email.

Really??  It's Perl.  It's a Turing-complete language, so you can do whatever
you want from within your filter.
