Ok, I'll do that next.

Yep, that's exactly what it said and I do have both directorys with the 
same permissions.  When I tell it to stop MailScanner I get the 
following line:

: No such file or directoryne 315: cd: /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming

but there is a /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming folder also.  I can stop 
MailScanner and start sendmail and I can receive mail again.  But once I 
sendmail and start MailScanner my mail stops coming in again.
