Is locking autodetecting, if you see what I mean? In the
MailScanner.conf it says...

# How to lock spool files.
# Don't set this unless you *know* you need to.
# For sendmail, it defaults to "flock".
# For sendmail 8.13 onwards, you will probably need to change it to posix.
# For Exim, it defaults to "posix".
# No other type is implemented.
Lock Type =

Does MailScanner *know* I'm running 8.13 or should I force posix locking?
