WOW without knowing anything else how can you be so sure he doesn't have
a MailScanner setup problem?  It looks to me like he might have a
problem with the setup itself, where the mail is being received but then
not being flushed from the que. Did you just install MailScanner?  If
you did, did you stop sendmail from running and then run the MailScanner
startup script?  It could be the mail is being received into the que and
then MailScanner is not seeing it to scan it and then flush it out. 
Would help to know a bit more about what started causing your problem
before we can figure out where the problem is.
