I didn't see your previous question about nonprvileged user... actually I 
only run it as root... ZMailer usually runs as root and postoffice 
permissions only allows root to mess around there.

I never run zmailer as non-root... is that possible? I guess that if it is 
so, using the same user for zmailer and MailScanner should be possible (in 
fact, I guess it should be necessary). You should check permissions on 
MailScanner temporary directories, but that should be it.
