Is access-db defined in milter-ahead.cf? By default is it OFF since it
is typically not required.

There is no tag called "tag:" The tag is "milter-ahead-Connect:"

It doesn't go into the milter-ahead.cf file. It goes into the access.db.
See the access-db option.

The above should work once you setup access-db properly.

Sounds like they've shorten the default RFC 5321 timeouts for commands

Make sure you set your /etc/syslogd.conf
Then HUP syslogd.
Then you can restart milter-ahead with:
milter-ahead -restart verbose+=info,dialog
And you'll see the debug SMTP dialog in the maillog.
