Help trying to install MailScanner 4.05-3 on SuSE 7.0

Hi all.
I need a helping hand...
I have already installed MailScanner on my SuSE 7.3 workstation and it works 
great, so I therefore copied all configuration files to the SuSE 7.0 server 
with the  indeicated permissions. It doesn't work. No way. It seems the first 
copy of sendmail simply does not push messages into, so they are 
not processed. If I change the O QueueDirectory in  to 
it indeed processes the messages, but they never will leave the mqueue 
directory. Great.
Here is my configuration:
(In crontab)

*/2 *  * * * root [ -x  /opt/MailScanner/bin/check_mailscanner ] &&\ 
/opt/MailScanner/bin/check_mailscanner > /dev/null 2>&1 
*/6 * * * * root sendmail -q   <----- In SuSE 7.0; in SuSE 7.3 I start 
sendmail by hand whenever I wish... testing, you know.

In the script that launches sendmail (/etc/rc.d/sendmail) there is the 
following: (only relevant part here and on one line) 

if test -z "$SENDMAIL_ARGS" ; then
	SENDMAIL_ARGS="-bd -ODeliveryMode=queueonly 
-OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/ &&\ -q5m"
In YAST I have the following (the arguments):
-bd -ODeliveryMode=queueonly -OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/ && \ 
sendmail -q5m all in one line.
What am I doing wrong?
