outbound mail gets stuck when MailScanner running

In MailScanner.conf there is a variable with the default setting
Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/mqueue.in

Just above it in the comments, it shows one of the options being the name of
a file containing a list of directory names.

You might try this.

an example:
in MailScanner.conf:
Incoming Queue Dir = /etc/MailScanner/mqueue.in.rules

in mqueue.in.rules:
and so on...
you would, of course, have to actually make these directories before doing
this, stop sendmail from running external to MailScanner, and start

Other than this(which occurred to me while taking a shower this morning
:-)), I'm fresh out of ideas.
