This is platform-specific. If your platform uses systemd, the command "systemctl reload mimedefang"  doesn't reload the mimedefang-filter, it only reloads the systemd definition of the mimedefang service, which effectively does nothing. To get your system to reload the mimedefang-filter, use the md-mx-ctrl tool:

    md-mx-ctrl reread

OR if you are not using the mimedefang-multiplexor (which I think everyone should...) you can keep using the systemctl stop and start functions while screaming curses at the abomination that is systemd and its deeply ignorant design.
