Usual reason for this is links in the /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming path.
You need to put the true path in the conf file that doesn't follow any
links at all.

I have added a note about this to the latest release, as it is a common

Also, as you are using clam, make sure that the user clam is running as can
actually read the incoming dir and all its subdirs.
