I have installed mailscanner 3.24.1 with sendmail on a debien intel
machine and the directory permissions are giving me trouble.

mailscanner will not run unless /var/spool/mqueue is owned by the user
smmsp and sendmail will not accept incomming mail unless
/var/spool/mqueue is owned by root.

I would like to upgrade to version 4.x but would like to get this
working first unless it will be easier to run version 4.x.

In practice, however, they are not."
