     That's not MIMEDefang, that's sendmail.  Check the contents of
/etc/mail/access.

} Mar  5 16:36:17 ant sm-mta[3694]: t25GaFwa003694: Milter (mimedefang):
} abort filter

     This is just MIMEDefang acknowledging that something else
(either sendmail or another milter) has dropped the message.

} Mar  5 16:36:17 ant sm-mta[3694]: t25GaFwa003694: Milter accept: message
} Mar  5 16:36:17 ant sm-mta[3694]: t25GaFwa003694: discarded
} 
} I think I should get a little more detail than this should I not?

     Details from MIMEDefang are totally dependent on the filter.  But
in this case, it has nothing to do with MIMEDefang.
