Start by testing them with MailScanner's command-line options.
Do a "MailScanner --help" to start with.
Is your "Run As User" set to blank (or root)?
The last time I tested this functionality it worked just fine, and I 
think other people use it.
If you really can't get it to work with test messages, then mail me back 
and I'll test it here for you.

Make sure your editor hasn't line wrapped the .rules file, the version 
you posted to the list has been wrapped.
