You just want
service MailScanner reload

I still use batch even with a high volume. As MailScanner V4 runs lots of
processes in parallel, you don't really need "queue" much any more. I do my
speed tests with "batch" and my development PC (about the equivalent of a
modern £700 (or $1000 US) pc) can do over 250,000 messages per day.
