Hello list!

I'm trying to setup mimedefang and sendmail on a replacement machine.

This is how I start mimedefang

mimedefang -c -k -p /var/spool/MIMEDefang/ -m 
/var/spool/MIMEDefang/multiplexor.sock -U mailnull

The multiplexor

mimedefang-multiplexor -U mailnull -s 
/var/spool/MIMEDefang/multiplexor.sock -l

Getting this in /var/log/maillog

mimedefang-multiplexor[13560]: started; minSlaves=1, maxSlaves=2, 
maxRequests=500, maxIdleTime=300, busyTimeout=120, clientTimeout=10
mimedefang-multiplexor[13560]: Starting slave 0 (pid 13561) (1 running): 
Bringing slaves up to minSlaves (1)
mimedefang[13564]: MIMEDefang alive. slavesReservedForLoopback=-1 
AllowNewConnectionsToQueue=0 doRelayCheck=0 doHeloCheck=0 
doSenderCheck=0 doRecipientCheck=0
mimedefang[13564]: Multiplexor alive - entering main loop

I've tried differnt users like daemon, smmsp, operator, nobody and even 
But no luck.

Getting an e-mail, sendmail respond with this

sm-mta[11617]: u5JM06Qf011617: Milter (mimedefang): local socket name 
/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock unsafe

Permissions on /var/spool/MIMEDefang/

drwx------  2 mailnull  mailnull    512 20 Jun 13:28 MIMEDefang

So what can I do?
