You should have 2 instances of sendmail running (incoming and outgoing)
The incoming queue should be using /var/spool/ and the outgoing 
sendmail instance should be using /var/spool/mqueue/.

You should make the changes for split recipients in the .mc or .cf for 
the incoming sendmail ONLY. You'll need to create a separate .mc and .cf 
for this instance of sendmail if you are splitting recipients, and make 
changes to the MailScanner init script where needed, per the doc you 
referred to.

Note that in normal MailScanner installation, the incoming and outgoing 
sendmail's use the same
