Grep for 'mimedefang' (all lowercase). You should see a line starting
with 'O' and a line starting with 'X'.
You can tell that MIMEDefang is working if your machine start to feel
Lines like the one bellow in Sendmail log files is good indication that
it is running:
Milter add: header: X-Scanned-By: MIMEDefang 2.xx on 220.127.116.11
Good idea when you are still building mimedefang-filter file is to have
it log everything it does. My personal preference is using md_syslog()
for this (not md_graphdefang_log()).
