Mailscanner getting bypassed and Sendmail still delivering mail.

Have you turned off sendmail as per the instructions in the installation?

If you run:
tail -f /var/log/maillog

after doing:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/MailScanner restart

Do you see any errors?

I suspect that you may have sendmail running as well as MailScanner
