For some reason your MailScanner is unable to shut down gracefully or
restart gracefully.
To get rid of them, shut down MailScanner, delete the lot, then re-start
MailScanner. They are only used for temporary working data while
MailScanner is running. Deleting it all (when MailScanner isn't running)
won't lose anything at all.

More recent versions of the code are better at cleaning up after themselves
than old versions.
