I just setup MS on a Mandrake 9.2 box and am getting the same error messages,
I tried Julian's suggestions of shutting down MS and then deleting and
recreating the incoming directory, then restart MS, however, I still have the
same errors in /var/log/mail/errors.

The orginal permissions on the incoming directory were 700, now it's 755.
